Norwich City Council

"Norwich's bid for Capital of Culture 2008 drew regional and national attention to the City's strengths and the, largely untapped, potential of cultural activities and assets for economic development. One of the most significant partnership projects to come out of the bidding process has been the development of The New Writing Partnership, which is based on one of the City's acknowledged cultural strengths. The City supports The New Writing Partnership because it builds on the existing reputation and premier position of the University of East Anglia in creative writing, aims to make Norwich a gathering point for writers from all over the world and become a focus for new writing talent nationally and internationally.
