3 evenings of poetry, fiction, lectures, discussions, music and fun designed to ENTERTAIN & INSPIRE.
Sentinel Literature Festival is a biennial event run by Sentinel Poetry Movement. First held in December 2009, the festival now runs every other October.
The participants and events at the festival have been carefully chosen and structured to excite and engage both writers and fans of literature.
