Writing is, at the most basic level, an act of communication. But are writers thinking enough about how they connect with their readers? What are the social responsibilities of being a writer – and who should decide where the boundaries lie? Writers Centre Norwich and Manchester Literature Festival present the latest instalment in the thought-provoking National Conversation, a series of discussions about how we produce and engage with writing. Joanne Harris, the award-winning author of 14 novels including the bestselling Chocolat, Peaches for Monsieur le Curé and The Gospel of Loki, has created a modern manifesto for writers.
Join her and our hand-picked panel as we discuss why writers write, why readers read, and what needs to happen for both groups to flourish.
