Introducing our Young Ambassadors

The National Centre for Writing is delighted to welcome 14 new faces to the NCW Young Ambassador programme 2019.

These ambassadors 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.

Young Ambassadors get behind-the-scenes passes to festivals and events as well as opportunities to interview writers and artists. They can take part in workshops to support their professional development including presenting in public. Each ambassador is assigned a mentor to help them identify and reach their own goals.

We look forward to seeing their news, reviews and interviews over the coming months!
