The Nature Island Literary Festival and Book Fair is normally held on the first weekend of August, with the opening night on a Friday evening. The festival forms part of Emancipation Day activities. Its purpose is to showcase recognised regional talent and also to encourage new talent and publicise the work of local writers and poets.

The Festival also aims to promote reading, increase interest in literature and demonstrate that the literary arts and publishing are valid, rewarding and viable career choices for our people.

The event comprises prose and poetry readings, storytelling, music, film, interviews, competitions and workshops for adults and children. To date, invited literary personalities have included Nobel Laureate Derek Walcott, Earl Lovelace, Kwame Dawes, John Robert Lee, Marie-Elena John, Mervyn Morris and Colin Channer, to name a few.

The Book Fair is also a big part of the festival and offers attendees an opportunity to view and purchase local and regional books through an assortment of publishers and book stores.
