"a literary force complete with heavyweight guest lists" SMH
Over the past 16 years, the Shanghai International Literary Festival (SILF) has hosted over 1,000 writers and has seen some of the world’s greatest writers and thinkers in conversation.
The Festival creates a dialogue between writers and readers along Shanghai’s famous waterfront ‘Bund’. It brings together emerging and established writers of all genres for a taste of the current literary landscape.
Spanning two weekends it includes panel discussions, literary lunches, workshops and live events throughout the week as well as kids’ sessions, big names and more on the weekend.
The Festival includes winners of the world’s leading literary prizes, including Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, Man Booker Prize, National Book Award for Fiction, Miles Franklin Award, Commonwealth Writers Prize. Founded and organised by the incredible Michelle Garnaut of the M Restaurant Group, an Australian and creator of the M restaurants in Shanghai, Beijing and Hong Kong. http://www.m-restaurantgroup.com/community/m-literary-festival/
