Application Deadline: 30th March, 2017
Additionally, to nudge other budding poets on, there will be special appearances and a panel discussion amongst guest performance poets who have excelled in the act of rendering their poems both in English and native tongues whilst promoting indigenous cultures and customs.
Note: Selected poets would be invited to read/perform the poems during the festival.
