Pa Gya! A Literary Festival in Accra.
14th - 16th October, 2022

Pa Gya! A Literary Festival in Accra is a three day literary arts festival featuring activities such as readings, panel discussions, performances, book launches and sales, literary prize awards and many more. The festival engages all literary forms such as fiction, poetry, spoken word, comic and graphic novels, creative non-fiction such as travel writing and literary blogging. Over the years, the festival has grown to include art talks, art and literary exhibitions, film screenings and many more. The festival also offers booksellers, publishers and independent authors to showcase and sell their books.

Writers, poets, literary performers, academics, editors, illustrators, librarians, literary agents, bloggers and many other literary practitioners from Ghana, Africa, the Black Diaspora and all over the world find a welcoming space to showcase their works and fraternise during the festival. In 2021, we featured guests from 17 countries across the world and hosted audiences both online and in-person.

Over the past five editions, Pa Gya! has brought the literary community in Ghana together and provided platforms for networking and initiatives.

In 2022, the festival promises to be as exciting, if not more so, than previous editions. We look forward to working with our collaborators for yet another exciting edition.
