We have planned an exciting programme of free literary events this semester at the Centre for New Writing (CNW). This includes Man Booker shortlisted writer, Amitav Ghosh on Fiction and History as well as readings, masterclasses and an open mic session for postgraduate students. Literary Leicester, the University’s annual festival will take place between 13-16 November, so book your free tickets as soon as possible (see http://www2.le.ac.uk/institution/literary-leicester/litleic2012).
The CNW programme for this semester will shortly be made available on the CNW website:
One of the best things about the CNW events is that you get to meet local writers and become familiar with Leicestershire’s rich literary cultures. We make sure that our programme is varied, containing a mixture of established and overlooked literary figures and covering a range of genres.
