The National Centre for Writing is delighted to welcome 18 new faces to our brand new ‘Lit from the Inside’ professional development programme.
The ‘Lit Insiders’ share a love of reading, writing and books in their schools and local communities, and will spend the next 12 months helping spread the word of Norwich as England’s first UNESCO City of Literature while gaining valuable experience for a future career in the creative industries.
Through a range of creative and professional development opportunities, the ‘Lit Insiders’ will explore how an arts organisation works from the inside; judging the Young Norfolk Writing Competition and planning the finalists showcase; interviewing authors, translators and international writers; and developing their own creative writing. Participants will also have the opportunity to complete their Bronze or Silver Arts Award – a nationally recognised qualification.
We look forward to seeing their news, reviews and interviews over the coming months!
