We are Bare Lit, a literature festival celebrating the work of remarkable writers in diaspora.
In 2015, the UK's three largest literary festivals featured over 2000 authors. Of those 2000+ authors, only 4% were from Black Caribbean, Black African, South Asian or East Asian backgrounds, based on a report published by SPREAD THE WORD.
We are changing that.
