Workshops & Events

The Writers Centre is the home of the Bocas Lit Fest at 14 Alcazar Street, St. Clair, Port of Spain.

You may have come to know us best through our signature annual event, the NGC Bocas Lit Fest – now, experience us outside of festival time, too! The Writers Centre is committed to providing a warm, intimate space for workshops and events, with emphasis on respectful dialogue and productive, collaborative learning. The Writers Centre will remain closed to in-person events while social distancing measures are in place, but we continue to support Caribbean reading, writing, and ideas in virtual space!
