Malcolm Bradbury's involvement with the UEA and Norwich dates back to 1965 when he was persuaded to leave Birmingham University for a university that was still being built.
He became a crucial figure in the elevation of the UEA and its reputation, founding the creative writing course in 1970 and presiding over it until he retired to devote himself to full-time writing in 1995. He made the city of Norwich his home and remained at its heart until his death in Autumn 2000.
The Fund has been founded, with the support of the UEA and his family and friends, both to commemorate Malcolm Bradbury's unique role as a literary father figure and, in some ways, to try and follow his example. The Fund's role is to offer a number of scholarships to students attending the UEA creative writing course.
