Winter in India is a literary season that stretches from September until February with an array of literary festivals across the entire sub-continent. Having brought authors to Indian festivals for a decade, this year we organised a professional visit to three festival cities: Kolkata, Jaipur and Thiruvananthapuram, with a stop in Delhi where we met with representatives of cultural institutions and diplomatic missions, including the EU Delegation in India during a literary evening, as well as meeting with students at the Vedica Post-Graduate Programme for Women. The participants attended the Kolkata Literary Meet, in Jaipur they spoke about their work at the Jaipur Book Mark, the b2b segment of the legendary Jaipur Literary Festival, and in Thiruvananthapuram or Trivandrum, as it’s still known, they took part in the Mathrubhumi International Festival of Letters.
