Seen Elsewhere: 2014 Irrawaddy Literary Festival

The Second Irrawaddy Literary Festival has just finished.  Here is a round-up of predominantly local press coverage.

The Myanmar Times - The Ministry of Culture forced a change in venue, read about it here.

The Myanmar Times - An interview with Ma Thanegi, one of Myanmar's best-known writers writing in English. 

The Myanmar Times - A discussion of Bones Will Crow, an English-language collection of poetry, edited by Ko Ko Thett and James Byrne, soon to be available as a print version in Asia. To purchase the eBook from the UK publishing house, Arc Publications, see here.

Myanmar Update - a very brief account of Aung San Suu Kyi's appearance at the Festival.

The Irrawaddy - from last month, an account of why some local poets apparently boycotted the Festival.

And whilst you're at it, you might take a look at the South China Morning Post's (Hong Kong) round-up of the best of 2014's literary festivals in Asia.
