We are working with a range of partners to develop a programme of residencies at the National Centre for Writing and host visiting writers and translators at Dragon Hall from summer 2018 onwards.
Each residency will be bespoke, designed with our partners to meet the needs of the writers and translators taking part. We are keen to host writers and translators who are willing to promote contemporary writing and culture, and to engage in the literary and cultural life of Norwich.
Some of our residencies will be more focused on time to write and translate, taking advantage of the tranquil surroundings here in Norwich. Other residencies will include the opportunity to take part in other literary activities, workshops and events, and to meet other writers.
Our writers and translators in residence will be accommodated in the newly-refurbished two-bedroom cottage at Dragon Hall. Residents will have access to the writers’ colony and library in the main building.
