What is Paris Lit Up?

Paris Lit Up does not exist. Or rather, Paris Lit Up isn’t any individual project or person. Paris Lit Up is the space between the independently run projects that trace its outline. Paris Lit Up shines as a constellation of these bright literary stars in the Parisian night. Paris Lit Up lives in the visible and invisible connections between these ventures and the groups that animate them. Paris Lit Up dwells somewhere deep inside each of these projects because they enrich and empower the people around them. Paris Lit Up aims to build this open community while nurturing the goodwill to collectively share and grow together. Paris Lit Up pulses through the rhizomes of shared practices, common spaces and cooperative spirit. Paris Lit Up explodes in the creative potential of the international literary scene in our beloved City of Lights, Paris.
