The Hong Kong International Literary Festival         The Hong Kong International Literary Festival is organised and coordinated by Hong Kong International Literary Festival Limited, a registered company limited by guarantee that is run as a not-for-profit organisation. Featuring overseas and local authors, the Festival offers a ten-day programme of literary events annually in October. The Festival has become an important and significant event on the international arts calendar, with programmes that include winners of the world's leading literary prizes: Man Booker, Nobel Prize in Literature, Pulitzer Prize, National Book Award, Costa Whitbread Book Award, Carnegie Medal, Kiriyama Prize, Prix Goncourt and the Commonwealth Writers Prize. The Festival's international status is clearly confirmed by both the quality of authors and range of countries represented. Each year, the programme offered promises to be as vibrant as Hong Kong is exciting, as dynamic as Hong Kong is cosmopolitan and as diverse as Hong Kong is multicultural. 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 and promotes the literary arts and a love of literature. The Schools Programme has been a popular component of the Hong Kong International Literary Festival from the very beginning. Every year we have invited students to experience a wonderful programme that allows them to interact with, learn from and be inspired by acclaimed, popular and beloved authors. The Festival commits to investing in the readers and writers of the future. By presenting a programme that allows readers and writers of all ages to interact, we wish to encourage an appreciation of the written word and to foster a love of literature. We hope that the Schools Programme will have a lasting impact on the students who attend. Please note that these events are for school groups only as they take place during school hours. The Hong Kong International Literary Festival is a not-for-profit organisation with a very small staff and limited financial resources. We rely on the generosity of individuals and corporations to keep the Festival going from year to year. Sponsorships also help us to provide a wide range of events, including university lectures and free events. They also help us to keep prices for our Schools Programme low so that as many students as possible can attend.
