26 For Norwich
  • Norwich writers map
  • Norwich is a UNESCO City of Literature, England's first. We celebrated the achievement. At writers’ collective 26, we suggested pairing 26 of our writers with 26 writers from Norwich’s history chosen by Writers’ Centre Norwich.

    The twins turned into triplets when students from the UEA creative writing course joined in. The idea was simple: we each produced a piece of writing in response to the historic writer we'd been paired with. And then we wrote a 'creation story' about how we went about the task. You can find all these pieces of writing on the site. We editors read out our works at the launch of the Worlds Literature Festival in 2013.
