Celebrating the literary world of poetry, prose and spoken words, the George Town Literary Festival (GTLF) will host various writers, novelists, spoken word artists and more from diverse writing disciplines. This year’s theme, “We Are Who We Are/Are We Who We Are?", is an urgent one – one that has become pervasive and universal, and begs a discerned discourse. Guest writers include Marina Mahathir, Shirley Lim Geok-Lin, Chuah Guat Eng, Lim Swee Tin, Zunar, Anja Utler, Franca Treur, Wajahat Ali, Judy Fong Bates, Anne Provoost, Danton Remoto, Omar Musa, Robin Hemley, Xu Xi, Joshua Ip, Tan Sooi Beng, Khoo Salma, Paul Augustin, Khairudin Aljunied, Robin Ruizendaal, Anthony Milner and more.
