Calabash 2016 International Literary Festival

Memories of Calabash 2016, Treasure Beach Jamaica

Calabash is one of the best interational literary  events in the Caribbean that everyone who enjoys reading is advised to take a trip to at least once in their lifetime. The Calabash Festival is held once every two year presents a collection of note worthy Authors and Poets from around the globe who read excerpt from their latest work. Calabash also provides a space for inspired and new Authors and Poets to take part in the ‘Open Mic’ Sessions.

“The mission of the Calabash International Literary Festival Trust is to transform the literary arts in the Caribbean by being the region’s best-managed producer of workshops, seminars and performances. We will achieve these goals by focusing on our audiences, managing our budget, creating a community of supporters in the media, government, business, the performing arts, philanthropic organizations and publishing, and by becoming the festival of choice for the world’s most gifted authors.”

Of cause, if you are travelling around the island of Jamaica and would like to stop over for Calabash, there are plenty of guest home available and we found the community to be one of the safest and friendliest places on the island. Also, if you are thinking about just visiting this pleasure spot outside of Calabash, the guest homes are  open all around the year to provide their super customer services.
