UNESCO City Of Literature

WordPress Norwich Unesco City Of Literature

Norwich was officially declared a UNESCO City Of Literature on 5th November 2012.

The city is the first one selected in England, and the sixth in the World. A grant of £340,000.00 has been approved through UNESCO’s flagship project. It has been suggested that these funds will lead to a creation of an international centre for writing in Norwich.

In celebration of the recent news, a handful of Norwich Writers’ Circle committee members attended a reception in Blackfriars Hall on 4th December. The reception gave the opportunity for members of local writing organisations to share in the good news, and to praise the various arts bodies who were instrumental in bringing the successful bid to the city.

NWC next meet on 15th December for our annual Christmas Celebration. We look forward to seeing you there.
