George Town Literary Festival’s theme for 2021, Mikro-cosmos, explores the spirit of cosmopolitanism and interconnectedness that endures through literature, language and ideas. GTLF’s latest edition will take place on 25 - 28 November 2021. The festival is directed by Pauline Fan and curated by Izzuddin Ramli, both respected figures in Malaysia’s trove of writers and translators. GTLF is supported by the State Government of Penang and 2021 marks the sixth year GTLF and will be produced by Penang Convention & Exhibition Bureau (PCEB). As with last year’s Festival, GTLF will once again feature mostly online conversations. GTLF 2021 will offer a vast and engaging programme that includes a series of specially curated podcasts and videos in English and Bahasa Malaysia.
