Featuring overseas and local authors, the Festival offers a ten-day programme of literary events annually in the autumn.
ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
The Hong Kong International Literary Festival (HKILF), founded in 2001, is an annual event held over 10 days in the fall, featuring established and emerging writers from around the world in a programme that includes discussions, literary lunches and dinners, workshops, lectures, debates, book signings, and readings.
The stellar list of past HKILF authors includes literary luminaries such as Seamus Heaney, Louis de Bernières, Colm Tóibín, Jung Chang, and Yann Martel.
HKILF is organized and coordinated by Hong Kong International Literary Festival Limited, a non-profit, charitable literary arts organization which also manages the annual Young Readers Festival (YRF).
The Hong Kong International Literary Festival celebrates creative writing in English and emphasises writing with an Asian connection. The Festival features both established and emerging authors and includes works in translation, literary fiction and non-fiction, poetry and scriptwriting. The Festival unites authors and readers to promote the literary arts and a love of literature in Hong Kong.
