Langkawi is proud to announce its very first Writers’ Festival. Between 1 to 4 September 2022, the festival will welcome inquisitive, stirring, and boundary-pushing conversations helmed by the brightest of contemporary thinkers and writers. We welcome you to join us—to make connections in person, share your thoughts, and bring Langkawi’s boldest literary and art festival to life.
Our four-day lineup is brimming with lectures, talks, and workshops which focus on themes that resonate with the global citizen.

Langkawi’s slow island life also offers an intimate local backdrop for knowledge seekers to dwell in the heart of conversations about the history of the Malay language, its place in the broader world of literature, and the broader state of the culture and the arts in Malaysia. Give yourself the time and space to explore the world. Langkawi Writers’ Festival: next stop, for those who read.

We're writing our future
