With Autumn behind us, it’s time for the Literary Festival to evolve – ready for some exciting developments and a celebration of 50 years of the pioneering Creative Writing programme at UEA.
Prof Henry Sutton, Director of Creative Writing at UEA, said: “Since its inception, UEA’s pioneering Creative Writing MA has provided a unique environment for writers to meet, develop and discuss their work. The results have been phenomenal and over the last 50 years the programme’s alumni have gone on to shape the literary landscape of the UK and beyond.
“Building on this remarkable heritage, the anniversary is an opportunity to look ahead to the future of creative writing, in what promises to be a fantastic anniversary celebration.”
We will not have a spring edition of the festival, but will return with a programme of events for autumn 2020 and spring 2021.
So you don’t miss us too much, in partnership with The Arthur Miller Institute, we will host a special spring event with literary legend Isabel Allende, who will discuss her much-awaited new novel, A Long Petal of the Sea. Tickets are now available online.
We look forward to sharing the details of upcoming events with you soon.
Best wishes, the UEA Literary Festival team.
