The NGC Bocas Lit Fest is Trinidad and Tobago’s annual literary festival but it is Caribbean in scope.  The festival season starts with a month of storytelling with the NGC Children’s Bocas Lit Fest Storytelling Caravan at venues all around the country throughout April.  This year is the 13th children’s festival and, after a two-year break due to COVID-19, we are pleased to continue taking the Caravan to ten locations throughout Trinidad and Tobago  

During these FREE sessions, our storytellers tell stories, then encourage the children to craft a story based on a suggested title, unleashing and guiding their creativity and inspiring them to value self-expression through the written word in a story writing workshop.

The workshop teaches the construction of a story and we record the contributions made by children in the group. 

The stories are then edited and put into a book with their names listed as authors. The stories are also published in the Sunday Express.

Who is Dragonzilla?

Dragonzilla is the mascot of the NGC Children’s Bocas Lit Fest. This smiling friendly dragon lives in the Bocas del Dragón (Dragon’s Mouths) in the Gulf of Paria, but comes out to visit children who take part in the Children’s Storytelling Caravan, helping them to develop a love for reading, writing and storytelling.
