With less than a week to go until our immersive literary spectacular The Story Machine: Under Surveillance at Norfolk & Norwich Festival, we’ve teamed up with the kind folks at Serpent’s Tail to give away five free copies of The Accusation – a short story collection smuggled out of North Korea, written by an anonymous dissident known only as Bandi.

Between Friday 12 and Tuesday 16 May, we will be posting one clue each day to the WCN Twitter and Instagram accounts which will direct you to Story Machine posters in Norwich. Be the first to arrive and tear down a poster, then follow the instructions on the back to claim your prize.

We’ll also be posting the clues here each day in case you miss them!

Please read the terms & conditions below before entry. Any questions? Drop us a line at info@writerscentrenorwich.org.uk
