Lit-Fest offers a platform for word artists such as writers, poets, storytellers to share and exhibit their literary skills.
Festivals of this nature produce an environment that inspires creativity amongst artists to create and collaborate with each other. Each and every year we make a deliberate effort to invite people with immense experience and vast depth in the field of language and literature to come and grace the event. This allows for a great deal of cross pollination of ideas between established and aspiring writers. This year is no different, we have invited Dr Siphiwo Mahala and Hendrich Dirk from Via Afrika to join the conversation. Dr Mahala share his experiences in writing and publishing in indigenous languages and his journey as a literary enthusiast and a champion of the department of African. Languages. Hendrich Dirk offers and empowering session on the journey towards getting published for the first time. The wealth of information shared by these luminaries is invaluable and we are grateful that they were both able to join this digital presentation of our programme.
Lit-Fest is an initiative of the Eastern Cape Department of Sports Recreation Arts and Culture.
