The written word will envelop Durban as writers from around South Africa and the continent arrive in the city for a stimulating week of books, ideas and talks at the 14th Time of the Writer International Festival. The festival will feature a diverse gathering of literary luminaries including novelists, short story writers, humour writers, political commentators and more. Participants include acclaimed French novelist Marie Darrieussecq and Senegalese novelist, journalist and screenwriter Boubacar Boris Diop. The festival delivers a dynamic literary platform for dialogue and exchange on wide-ranging themes, and offers a rare opportunity to gain insight into the many facets that inform the art of writing.
