About Bengal Lights Literary Conclave

Bengal Lights Literary Conclave aims to occupy the discussion space between literary festivals and academic conferences, with concentrated discussions on a relevant literary theme, delving into it through structured panel discussions that each address an essential and complementary aspect of the broader topic. We further aim to capture the essence of the discussions in essays to be later published in the Bengal Lights literary journal as well as partner publications.
