In recent years, the North, always rich in literary heritage, has seen a spectacular new flourishing of home-grown literary and publishing talent, with some of the most exciting, diverse (and award-winning) new literature, poetry and theatre in the country coming from Northern artists and publishers. Now, with some of our national cultural institutions and major publishers also looking to open Northern hubs, could we finally be seeing the dawn of a less London-centric literary ecosystem?
Join our panel as they unpack the successes of the Northern literary ‘renaissance’ to date and share why more major institutions are looking to the North as the ideal ‘regional’ presence. Industry experts, Caroline Norbury, Jamie Andrew and Emma Layfield, will share their vision for the North as a national literary hub.
