Read My World

October 1, 2015 - October 3, 2015

Read My World is the international literature festival of Amsterdam. Going beyond the commonplace, Read My World explores the boundaries between literature and journalism, between here and there – and draws attention to everything in between. This year’s edition takes place on October 1, 2 and 3 in the Tolhuistuin in Amsterdam North, with a special focus on journalism, literature and stories from South East Asia.

Read My World is a Amsterdam-based literary initiative offering a platform to new international literary developments. This is achieved through an international visitors’ program, a website and a festival.

Read My World challenges Dutch and international authors to explore the borders between literature and (research) journalism. Each year, the platform inspects a different region and asks local curators to introduce writers and poets who can tell us stories beyond the superficiality of day-to-day news.
