The Events

LOGOs International Literary Festival, 2013

CONCEPT

An international literary festival not only defines the place and the people, its culture and creativity, but also highlights the cultural trend of the times, connecting the creative memory of yesterday to today’s reality, extending it into tomorrow.

An International Literary Festival in Cyprus will enhance the island’s location as the bridge connecting three continents, by bringing together European and other neighbouring nationals, writers and artists, who will intermingle respecting each other’s language and identity, creating a harmonious coexistence.

Twenty four writers will meet in Cyprus for three days, from 1 - 3 November 2013. The Festival will also host artists and musicians.

The 3day Festival will take place in Nicosia and Platres.
