Worlds Literature Festival Salon: Influence
Each year the Worlds Literature Festival features The Salon - a space in which a group of invited writers can talk in depth about issues relating to their own and others’ writing; a space in which the art and craft of writing can be debated, connections between writers made, discoveries shared and conversations begun.
Taking place around a large conference table in the UEA’s Council Chamber and chaired by Professor Jon Cook from UEA, each session begins with a commissioned provocation that lasts approximately fifteen minutes. After the provocation has been given, Jon opens the floor to the gathered writers and the discussions begin!
