ABOUT CRATER LITERARY FESTIVAL
The Crater Literary Festival is an annual gathering of writers, readers, publishers, artists and art aficionados in Enugu, Southeast Nigeria. The Crater Literary Festival features a variety of presentations and readings by authors, spoken word artists, poets, and theatre group.
Panel discussions covering fiction, non-fiction, comics, libraries, and publishing are designed to provide an intellectual and academic focus for the participants.
The festival is free but participants are encouraged during online registration to bring a book for donation to the library (we love to use libraries as our festival venue so as to gain them publicity).
The primary objective is to promote local authors and connect them with publishers, at the same time, foster a love for literature and art among south easterners in Nigeria.
The first edition which was held on December 2nd,2017 at the Enugu State Library Board lawn, welcomed authors such as Abigail Anaba, Nnamdi Anyadu, and Chinyere Anoke. Enugu premier publisher and manager of Abic bookshop − Mr. C.N.C Asomugha, plus many more were also present.
We aim to bring the best of today’s writers, artists and best publishers to the event. We look forward to resurrecting Enugu as a nationally recognised powerhouse of creativity, innovation, and discovery.
With the second edition coming up on December 7-8, 2018, we aim to:
- support new and emerging talent in the art and literary circle.
- promote and encourage reading culture.
- create an open platform for discussions, mentorship, and collaborations among southeast creative.
- connect readers to their favourite authors and
- provide access to ‘affordable’ Nigerian books through booksellers/
Why we need your support.
The success of the first edition of the Crater festival was achieved with zero public funding. We rely on goodwill donations and income made from vendor space sales but we need more to continue to do what we do. We need additional resources to invest in and underpin the festival’s future development and stability.
