Writers' Centre Norwich newsletter

This month's Writers' Centre Norwich newsletter includes workshops, competitions and more:

The Festival edition: art & sexuality, crime fiction, graphic novels, translation and more
Exploring art & sexuality
How do we define good and bad writing about sex? Why are some artists unwilling or unable to explore sex in their work? 

Megan Bradbury, author of the 'unusual, intoxicating and bold' (Guardian)novel Everyone is Watching, takes us on a tour of her favourite examples of sexuality, identity and desire in art ahead of her Norfolk & Norwich Festival event with Eimear McBride and Sarah Hall.
