Since 2006, the Malta Mediterranean Literature Festival has brought together active writers and translators from Malta, the Mediterranean and beyond. This annual festival organized by Inizjamed celebrates language, translation and international literature with a diverse programme of activities and events, including a week-long Literary Translation Workshop.

Organized in the beautiful surroundings of Fort Saint Elmo between the 23rd and the 25th of August 2018, this platform works to consolidate the place of Maltese literature in a global and Mediterranean context, while promoting meaningful cross-cultural exchange and debate through close engagement with local and international creatives, . 2018 brings a special multidisciplinary edition of the festival to the capital city that uses script, text and music to play on the diverse themes of the programme.
