GUJARAT LITERATURE FESTIVAL (GLF)
A Celebration Of Literary Creativity
GLF is the first literary festival in Gujarat. It started three years back as a literary event, that includes all forms and mediums used to express literary creativity. We believe literature is not bound between the covers of a published book, but blooms in a free environment in myriad forms, languages and mediums.Hence this festival celebrates not only the book writers, poets and playwrights with the same fanfare with which it honours film writers, lyricists, bloggers, social media writers and other genres that use literary creativity.
This is the event where the entire creative community comes together to celebrate, ideas, writing, reading, philosophy, story-tellers, novelists, poets, ghazalkars, folk artist, film writers, lyricists, bloggers, social media debaters and more. It is also a unique festival in as it has a diversity of languages and multiplicity of mediums – more than one can experience on a single venue in any other festival.
