Writer Vahni Capildeo stayed with us in a virtual residency back in February and is joined in this week’s episode by Jeremy Noel-Tod, editor, critic and Senior Lecturer in Literature at the University of East Anglia. Together they discuss Vahni’s work, the inspiration found in places like Norwich and Edinburgh, the influence of Julian of Norwich and much more besides – all while enjoying an imaginary afternoon tea at the Maid’s Head Hotel.

We recommend reading Lighthouse and Anchorage by Vahni before listening to this episode: https://nationalcentreforwriting.org.uk/article/lighthouse-and-anchorage-journal-entries/

Vahni stayed with us as part of the month-long Imagining the City event, which you can find out about here: https://nationalcentreforwriting.org.uk/imagining-the-city/
