Wandering Words: A Walking Tour of Norwich UNESCO City of Literature
Sunday 14 August, 12.00am–Wednesday 31 August, 12.00am
Follow the walking trail and scan the QR code at each marked location to hear an immersive audio recording of a poem, as well as sounds of the people and settings that inspired each writer’s work. All you need is your mobile phone!
Discover Norwich of the past, present and future through newly commissioned stories from five brilliant writers with ties to the city: Andy Bennett, Hannah Levene, Victoria Adukwei-Bulley, Piers Harrison-Reid and Jessica Streeting. On this self-guided walk you’ll experience Norwich with fresh eyes and encounter the people and locations that inspired each writers’ work.
This literary walk has been created to celebrate the ten year anniversary of Norwich becoming England’s first UNESCO City of Literature. National Centre for Writing has commissioned five writers with a connection to the city to respond creatively to a particular place in Norwich or to an event in its history. These new works represent the breadth of new writing happening in, around and inspired by the city.
