Literature

With Norwich named as England’s first UNESCO City of Literature, and the city playing host to both the National Centre for Writing and the University of East Anglia’s world-leading creative writing course, the East of England has long punched above its quill when it comes to the written word.

Intermittent Southwold resident George Orwell took his pen name from the Suffolk river – while, more recently, celebrated author Kazuo Ishiguro (an alumnus of the above-mentioned UEA course) won the 2017 Nobel Prize for literature.

The East celebrates its pride of place within the nation’s literary world with a series of year-round events, workshops and readings.
