What’s on at National Centre for Writing
Upcoming events and courses hosted by National Centre for Writing at our literature house Dragon Hall, across Norwich, and online.
More ways to get involved…
We create exciting opportunities for writers at all stages to grow their practice personally or professionally. We identify and nurture early-career authors and offer inspiration and teaching support for those wanting to take the next steps.
Through UK-based and international partnerships we champion literary exchange and increase the visibility of writing in translation. NCW supports translators from across the globe via mentorships, events and both virtual and physical residencies here in Norwich.
We empower individuals and communities through a range of projects that celebrate Norwich’s diverse people and cultures; helping build new relationships and share experiences through written and oral storytelling.
For young people
We inspire and connect children and young people through a lively, engaging range of workshops, free activities and writing competitions to boost storytelling skills and encourage reading and writing for pleasure.
We recognise that a love of words and story-making makes writers of the future and can begin with the very youngest among us. Our family programme responds to this with an enthusiasm to create playful, creative sessions for families to enjoy together.
We support teachers and practitioners to engage and inspire pupils with creative writing via reading groups, networks with professional writers, free resources, online and in-person activity and place-based school visits.
