Based at Norwich’s historic Dragon Hall, Writers’ Centre Norwich is a literature development agency for writers, readers, literature professionals and anybody who loves books. They run events, workshops and online creative writing courses, have brilliant resources for readers, information on England’s first UNESCO City of Literature, writers’ resources and more.
Its mission is to explore the artistic and social impact of creative writing through pioneering and collaborative projects regionally, nationally and internationally – based on the strong belief that literature, creative writing, reading and literary translation can open doors to new worlds; they can liberate, entertain, challenge and transform lives.
In April 2015 WCN moved into the historic Dragon Hall; a Grade 1 listed medieval trading hall dating from around 1430, renowned for its spectacular timber crown-post roof and intricately carved and painted dragon. Their aim is to develop a National Centre for Writing which will open its doors in 2018, and will work across written forms and across the country for writers and readers alike. The NCW will be one of the most significant developments in the literature sector in the UK this century.
Writers’ Centre Norwich is open for a year-round programme of events, along with monthly heritage tours of Dragon Hall (check website for specific times)
