Festival participants have arrived from near and far and we are ready to kick off the 5th edition of the George Town Literary Festival from 27-29 November.
Head down to our festival village on Beach St, grab a copy of the festival booklet and start planning your weekend. All our events are free, with the exception of the workshops, so please register if you are keen.
We have almost 40 events over three days with writers, poets, musicians and performers from all over the world. Come with an open heart and be ready to be moved, provoked and engaged with some of the finest literary minds you’ll ever meet. Check out our festival programme here.
If you’ve never been to the festival, there’s never been a better time than now!
Come and see why Tan Twan Eng calls this, ‘One of the best festivals in the world’.
We’ve worked really hard to give you our boldest and biggest festival yet!
So, see you in George Town!
