Writers’ Centre Norwich’s mission is to put literature at the heart of contemporary culture. Through pioneering and collaborative projects they explore the artistic and social power of creative writing and literary translation.
They are currently transforming Dragon Hall, a medieval merchant’s hall in Norwich, a UNESCO City of Literature, into the National Centre for Writing. Opening in 2018, it will be a new space where established and emerging writers are supported and nurtured, where the best in world literature is made easily accessible to audiences and readers, and which benefits local communities through innovative education programmes.
Growing from just three staff in 2006, Writers' Centre Norwich has experienced an outstanding period of achievement and growth under the leadership of Chief Executive Chris Gribble, becoming England’s leading literature development body. A driving force behind the rapid development of the Norwich's creative industries, the Writers' Centre led the successful bid in 2012 for the city to be recognised as a UNESCO CIty of Literature.
