The George Town Literary Festival writes another enthralling chapter this year.

One of the most anticipated literary events in the region, the George Town Literary Festival (GTLF) returns November 24-26 for its seventh edition, promising a stellar line-up of local and international luminaries and exciting new programmes.

First held in 2011, GTLF has gone from strength to strength under the expert guidance of festival director Bernice Chauly, and was this year shortlisted for the International Excellence Awards at the London Book Fair’s The Literary Festival award.

But programming a successful literary event is by no means a walk in the park. It requires a tried-and-true formula, one which Chauly swears by. “I believe hard work, meticulous planning and curating, a good selection of writers and poets, and an open audience are what enabled the festival to flourish,” she says.
