‘All shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well.’
Looking for the perfect gift? Need a little sunshine pinned above your desk at home? Purchase a Julian of Norwich print (hand-made by Print to the People, a community printmaking studio in Norwich) and your money will go towards supporting an underrepresented writer at the beginning of their career.
Each year, our Escalator Talent Development Programme supports early-career writers in the East of England by providing eight months of mentoring, training, guidance and networking. However, years of austerity and the Covid-19 crisis have made funding through traditional means increasingly difficult. This year we are asking for your help to ensure we are able to continue providing essential support through this programme by purchasing a beautiful ‘All Shall be Well’ print – the proceeds of which will go towards our Escalator fundraising campaign.
Escalator normally mentors ten writers each year but in 2020 we were only able to fund six. Your support can make all the difference and help get the project back up to ten writers.
To support an early career writer costs £2,200 for the full eight months of the programme. This covers their mentoring, masterclasses in editing, performance, voice training and much more.
We are therefore aiming to raise £8,800 to secure four more places on the Escalator programme for 2021.
Prints are £10 each. As a thank you, we will also include a copy of our Walking Norwich chapbook with each order!
Please note: Due to lockdown restrictions, we are unable to offer a ‘click and collect’ service from Dragon Hall at this time. When ordering, please select postal delivery – your order will be processed and posted First Class within 7 working days.
About Julian of Norwich
Julian of Norwich, also called Juliana, (born 1342, probably Norwich, Norfolk, Eng.—died after 1416) is a celebrated mystic. Her book Revelations of Divine Love (or Showings) was the first work in the English language which we can be sure was authored by a woman and is generally considered one of the most remarkable documents of medieval religious experience. For this fact alone she is remarkable, but she was also one of the most sophisticated and unusual theologians of her era. She spent the latter part of her life as a recluse at St. Julian’s Church, Norwich. Read more
