International Writers Festival Durban

International Writers Festival Durban

A select group of leading writers from South Africa, Africa and abroad will gather in Durban for a thought-provoking week of literary dialogue and exchange of ideas at the  University of KwaZulu Natal’s 16th Time of the Writer International Writers Festival which takes place from March 18 to 23, 2013. Presented by the Centre for Creative Arts, housed in the College of Humanities and made possible through principal funding from the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund, the festival offers an activity-rich week, in which audiences can expect to hear the opinions of award-winning writers, from a variety of political and social contexts, on the creative and artistic processes and perspectives which inform their writing. 

Evening panels, book launches and discussions will take place at the UKZN Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre while wide-reaching free day programmes are spread across Durban and surrounding areas as part of the festival’s ongoing effort to promote and nurture a culture of reading, writing and creative expression. This includes school visits, a publishing forum, and a range of seminars and workshops.
