Ziro Literary Festival

Ziro Literary Festival

From the stables of the organisers of the Ziro Festival of Music, in partnership with Saint Claret College, Ziro, Arunachal Pradesh, comes the Ziro Literary Festival– a free, open-to-all youth literature festival. Started in 2018 with an aim to inspire students to create their own works of literature through engaging in discussions, readings, brainstorming sessions and workshops, the festival brings together award-winning writers, journalists, artists, as well as political and bureaucratic heads, enabling students and attendees of the festival to learn from the experiences of achievers from all walks of life. In promoting inter-cultural exchange, dialogue, knowledge-sharing and skill-building, the festival is thoroughly outcome-based and is focused on encouraging creative expression among young adults. The last edition of the festival hosted prominent authors, writers, poets and journalists from and outside the state, such as Mamang Dai, Madhu Raghavendra, Karma Paljor, Ranju Dodum, Ponung, Ering Angu, Sadiq Naqvi and Subi Taba. The Ziro Literary Festival can be live-streamed starting from 24 September.
