ITEF - The Istanbul Tanpınar Literature Festival, named after the famous modernist Turkish poet, novelist, essayist, and critic Ahmet Hamdi Tanpınar, is an international literary event held in the city of Istanbul to focus on a variety of genres, and to bring together writers, publishers, literary translators, critics and journalists for a series of inspirational encounters. Tanpınar is the author of famous novels such as A Mind at Peace, Song in Mahur, Waiting In The Wings, The Institute of Synchronized Clocks, and Woman in the Moon.

ITEF - The Istanbul Tanpınar Literature Festival establishes an annual forum for followers of Turkish and international literature. Authors, publishers, critics, translators, and members of the press from around the world will have the opportunity to meet, discuss and exchange ideas, and discover more about the rich literary voices coming out of Turkey today.
