Calabash Literary Festival 2018


Calabash Literary Festival 2018

Started On Thursday, 03 May

The Calabash International Literary Festival was founded in 2001 by novelist Colin Channer with the support of two friends, the poet Kwame Dawes and the producer Justine Henzell.

Their aim was simple—to create a world-class literary festival with roots in Jamaica and branches reaching out into the wider world.  

The festival is produced by the Calabash International Literary Festival Trust (the Trust), which also produces publishing seminars and writing workshops.
