The International Literary Festival Novotvar (meaning “New Form” and/or “New Word” in Slovak) was founded in 2016 in Bratislava. Every year, we aim to introduce our audience to the most interesting and daring trends in contemporary Slovak, European and world literature. As suggested by the festival name, our team focuses on new literature in all meanings of this term. Each edition of Novotvar presents writers who either published new books in the past year, represent the most progressive tendencies of contemporary literature, or belong to the youngest new generation of debutants.
