Under the motto We have a lot to say. To read, to explore, to see… the festival will showcase young authors’ work and give them the opportunity to exchange ideas with their peers.
Novelists and poets born in 1976 and onwards with at least one book published are going to be recommended by prestigious literature magazines, for participation through "Reading Marathon." Three finalists are going to be awarded 6 month fellowships in order to support their future creative projects. The festival will also host a variety of events such as group discussions, theatre and dance activities as well as short film projections.
