The underlying concept of the World Literatures - Fabula Festival has been to promote readership and the culture of reading in Slovenia. The main focus of the festival is no longer on short stories but on storytelling in general; in addition to book presentations and evening readings, the festival features screenings of films based on the works by Fabula festival guests. Besides renowned European story writers, numerous Slovene authors are featured in the festival. The event "World Literatures – Fabula 2010" opened the World Book Capital Ljubljana 2010 (WBC), while the 2011 edition wrapped up the WBC events in April.

In 2016 edition of the Fabula hosts Matthias Göritz, Cees Nooteboom, Juan Gabriel Vásquez and Sjón, while Slovenian guest is illustrator and artist Samira Kentrić presenting her new graphic novel.
