Reader letter: I’m pleased to see progress on Writer’s Centre

The Writers’ Centre, Norwich (which has been based at Dragon’s Hall since 2015) will this week host the beginning of a construction phase that is part of a £1.86m project.

I was very pleased to hear/read this about the centre. This will provide a physical sign of Norwich’s City of Literature status.

As this is a place for writers (like myself) this will allow people to liaise with all that is happening/going on throughout the country.

But she never had a clue what they were talking about as they (the group) used to go for a drink in the local pub beforehand!

I look forward to May, 2018 when the building structure is to be completed by.
