Here, literature sets its foot down and awakens by asking itself where it should start and finish, and whose hands it should hold. We awaken. Awakening—we’ll start anew from there. We invite you to the 2021 Seoul International Writers’ Festival.
Pairs of writers from Korea and abroad will discuss various issues of modern society in relation to their works.
Writers from different corners of the world gather together to discuss various global issues with readers.
Enjoy with your eyes and ears literary readings given by our participating writers.
In celebration of the 10th edition of the Seoul International Writers’ Festival, four short films inspired by Korean literary works have been produced. The online and offline screenings will be accompanied by special Q&As with the authors and directors, thereby offering a chance to enjoy screen adaptations of literary works.
This program carefully examines the works and literary perspectives of the Korean writers participating in SIWF 2021. Like an open book, each “Writer’s Room” is there for you to explore at your leisure.
