First Organized in 2010
The event was first organized in 2010, and like it does every year, had it’s share of successes along with it’s minor drawbacks. Every year, especially in 2012, many of the speakers didn’t show up and the audience turnout rate wasn’t the greatest, however the ones that did show up had a blast and the ones that didn’t will never have to opportunity to get back what they missed.
The event has been evolving since then and getting bigger better, not forgetting popular, now getting a wider selection of authors, poets etc from far away edges of the world.
