In this photo taken on Sunday, Feb. 3, 2013, Myanmar poet Saw Wai talks at the third day session of the Irrawaddy Literary Festival at Inya Lake hotel in Yangon, Myanmar. Nearly two years into reformist president Thein Sein's term, the rush of hope and idealism that greeted many new freedoms - most strikingly freedom of speech - is turning into a measured assessment of the country’s progress. Long accustomed to writing around censorship, Myanmar's writers are relearning the habits of free thought and testing the boundaries of speech. (AP Photo/Khin Maung Win)
