Adbee Markaz Kamraz (AMK), a literary organisation promoting Kashmiri language, on Monday said it is planning to hold an international Kashmir Literary Festival (KLF) on the pattern of the Jaipur Literary Festival here later this year.

“To bring Kashmir on the international literary scene, AMK plans to organise the first ever international Kashmir Literary Festival in Srinagar this year,” said general secretary of the organization Shujaat Bukhari in a statement. “It will be on the lines of Jaipur Literary Festival and Karachi Literary Festival,” he added.

This will be a first of its kind literary carnival in Kashmir to which authors from around the world will be invited to share their works with local authors, he said. - PTI
