|Email item||Print item||
There are now over thirty Gozitan wordsmiths that have joined together to form a broadly based writers group with the intriguing title of ‘Gozo Live’ – performance writers society.
Through the support of the Ministry for Gozo, ‘Gozo Live’ aims to bring local creative writing in all forms to the public through regular open meetings of story tellers in all genres from authors of novels and short prose, playwrights and poets, to song writer/musicians and comedians.
The next edition of the performance writers forum, ‘Gozo Live,’ for writers in all genres, is being held at St Ursola Hall at the Cittadella Centre for Culture & Arts, this evening, Wednesday, the 17th of July, starting at at 7.00pm.
Writers in all disciplines are warmly invited to go along to what will be an informal evening, which will include short performances by Gozo resident writers, readers and performers of short prose, poetry, plays, scripts, story telling, folk music and lyrics reading.
Gozo and Malta are steeped in the performing arts. Many internationally renowned writers and poets come from these islands. ‘Gozo Liive’ seeks to sustain and develop this proud tradition, whilst at the same time providing a social opportunity for literary artists to meet and perform among friends and appreciative visitors.
‘Gozo Live’ also welcomes writers from other places to connect with Gozitan writers in a spirit of friendship and cooperation.
The forum’s primary aim is to maintain the proud tradition of creative writing in Gozo and to enhance the Island’s reputation as a place of cultural diversity and excellence.
This project is building on the initiative of Alan Lloyd, a Gozitan resident, author and poet with the full support of the Gozo Culture Office in the Ministry for Gozo.
