Applauding the state’s literary pioneers and mentors - Padma Shri and Sahitya Academy awardee Y D Thongchi, Padma Shri Mamang Dai and Lummer Dai - for their contributions to the literature, Felix said they provided a platform to local writers and poets to have meaningful discussions to upgrade skills.

With the theme “Read, Reflect, Reimagine”, the festival, organised by the state Information & Public Relations Department in collaboration with the APLS, is a calendar event aimed at promoting creative writing. It is a forum to encourage the local emerging talents to enhance their skills in creative writing.

Many prominent authors, writers, poets, publishers, upcoming writers and literature lovers from across the state and outside participated in the three-day event starting on Thursday.
