    What is JLF?
    If you haven’t already heard of it, here’s what you should know: as the name suggests, it’s a literature festival being held in Jaipur where literary icons from all over are going to gather at to create an intellectually enriching experience. Some have dubbed the Zee Jaipur Literature Festival one of the most invigorating and engaging literary fests around, and we’re really eager to get involved and celebrate some exceptional authors, writers, journalists and literary enthusiasts too.

We understand that being a writer can be wonderful and challenging all at the same time, but when you think about it, all of us just want to be heard, don’t we? So for this project we thought it would be great if we could work with our own Robert Fisks and Christian Amanpours as Dysco’s correspondents.

You will be doing what you’re passionate about, writing, communicating and capturing moments with your creativity. It’s just that simple!
