Worlds Literature Festival 2013
Our Worlds Literature Festival takes place every year towards the end of June. It brings together writers from around the world in a week of events, readings and discussion.
This year the Worlds Literature Festival is taking place from the 17th- 21st June in venues across Norwich. Writers will be flying in from across the world to enjoy inspiring discussion and debate. There will be some fantastic author events open to the public, including a series of free Afternoon Readings. Jeanette Winterson, Nobel Laureate JM Coetzee and Michael Ondaatje are just a few of the world-renowned authors who have visited Norwich and featured in our Worlds events.
Worlds Literature Festival also coincides with our Summer Reads Program and Refugee Week.
Full details on our Worlds 2013 events will appear on this page soon. Come along and join us for a week of celebrating the best international talent in writing.
Worlds Literature Salon
As well as our public events for Worlds Literature Festival we also run the Salon, which provides a unique space for writers across the world to meet and talk about thing that matter to them.
This theme of last year's Worlds Salon was 'Fiction, Memoir and the Self'. The events explored the relationship between biographical truth, fictional representation and the idea of memoir – how the self is presented in fiction and memoir and what this might mean for the writer as an artist and as a public figure; alternative traditions and norms in different literatures and how might the act of translation sit between memoir and fiction.
