It is a matter of great pride and honour for Amity University Uttar Pradesh (AUUP) to host
Amity International Literature Festival (AILF'20) from Thursday, the 15th October
to Saturday, the 17th October, 2020.
At Amity, the students are nurtured in an environment which not only encourage them to
excel in their professional fields but also provide them various platforms for their holistic
development so that they can leave an imprint on the society with their unique ideas and
thoughts. Literature with all its facets is a key that help them to unlock their immense
potentials, instill in them the courage to spread their wings and open new vistas.
It is extremely satisfying to see the incredible energy and richness from the
participating students from various parts of the world. During the three-days event
the students would get plethora of opportunities to express themselves in prose and
verse, participate in debates, showcase their creative sides and hone their creative
skills, besides attending workshops on various themes to be conducted by renowned
subject experts/specialists of national and international repute.
I extend my heartiest welcome to all the participating members, who have joined AILF’20 from
across the globe - USA, UK, Australia, UAE, Indonesia, Germany, Mauritius, Bangladesh, Egypt,
Cyprus, Libya, Canada, Kuwait, Pakistan, Myanmar, Oman, Indonesia, Nepal, besides others.
I also convey my warm welcome to the distinguished panelists and jury members
comprising prominent academicians, authors, artists and other professionals from
across the country and overseas and wish them a wonderful and enriching experience.
