Grassroutes: Contemporary Leicestershire Writing
Posted on 2020-07-29 - 11:17 authored by Corinne Fowler
Promoting public knowledge of Leicestershire’s diverse literary cultures
The project surveys high-quality transcultural writing by Leicestershire-based writers from 1980 to the present. It fosters local, national and international appreciation – as well as critical recognition - for this writing.
Grassroutes supports the efforts of independent publishers and literature development agencies to inspire public engagement with the diverse writing cultures of multi-racial Britain.
The five project outputs:
- An edited online Writers’ Gallery containing 50 author pages;
- An online electronic catalogue of transcultural writing by Leicester-based writers from 1980 to present.
- A £1,000 creative writing commission:
- An exhibition about writers in Leicestershire (October and November 2012)
- A Grassroutes blog on the Literature Network.
