The 6th Annual NGC Bocas Lit Fest


The 6th Annual NGC Bocas Lit Fest will take place from April 27 to May 1, 2016, in Port of Spain, Trinidad. In the coming months the NGC Bocas Lit Fest team will be sharing more information about the 2016 festival at their website. For now, they explain:

This year’s festival, as always, will feature dozens of remarkable writers from Trinidad and Tobago, the Caribbean, and further afield—sharing their words, ideas, and stories through readings, discussions, workshops, and performances.

The programme also includes the announcement of the winners of the 2016 OCM Bocas Prize for Caribbean Literature and the Burt Award for Young Adult Literature; as well as the epic First Citizens National Slam (formerly Verses Bocas Poetry Slam) with a whopping TT$20,000 prize up for grabs! Plus a full schedule of storytelling for children, open mic sessions, film screenings, music, and a chance to meet writers at book signings.
