The International Literature Showcase in Norwich City of Literature is taking place in June 2017. The showcase is an opportunity to discover new writers and organisations, encounter new approaches to literature and take part in industry discussions.
WILAA founder Lefa Singleton Norton has been invited as an international delegate and will be using funding from the Melbourne City of Literature Travel Fund to attend. This is an exciting opportunity to connect with women writers all over the world and in particular the United Kingdom. We know that women face unique challenges in the literary sphere, and this will be an opportunity to meet and discuss how we might work together to overcome these.
There are plenty of opportunities to join in the International Literary Showcase from afar as some events are available on livestream and discussions take place on Slack. Expect more updates from the ILS soon.
