The Writer's Quest conference

Julian Study Centre and the Sainsbury Centre, UEA

Registration for this conference is now closed, but tickets for public events are still available - please visit the Doris Lessing 100 website for details.

UEA enjoyed a long association with Doris Lessing. She held the title of Distinguished Fellow of Literature, and the University's British Archive for Contemporary Writing (BACW) proudly hosts her vast archive of correspondence, diaries and personal papers. 

Lessing would have turned 100 years old on Tuesday 22 October this year. To mark this important milestone, the School of Literature, Drama and Creative Writing - in partnership with the BACW - is hosting a major international conference, an exhibition, and other public events.
