By the Book: Kuala Lumpur Youth Literary Arts Festival 2022

Organised by MIDP and MY Poetry School, the inaugural Kuala Lumpur Youth Literary Arts Festival will be running from 24th to 26th June 2022, with the aim of promoting literary arts education, highlighting young, emerging writers, and building youth writing communities. We speak to organisers Emellia Shariff and Elaine Foster as well as Teoh Nuan Ning, a young poet who is also one of the mentors during the festival, to find out more about the festival, what attendees can expect, and why it's important to have events like these. Then in Footnotes, both Elaine and Nuan Ning perform some poetry for us.
