UEA Live presents Jonathan Gibbs

This event will take place at Cafe Bar Marzano, in the Forum.

A series of Live Literature events from the University of East Anglia run in collaboration with Writers’ Centre Norwich.

Join us for the second season of UEA Live; a series of free readings by established writers who are all graduates of UEA’s Creative Writing Programmes. The established writers will be supported by current Creative Writing undergraduates, bringing together talented writers at all stages of their careers for your delectation. 

The events are a chance to enjoy quality writing in a relaxed atmosphere as well as the chance to chat to each other and the writers over a drink (or two).

Jonathan's first novel, Randall was published by Galley Beggar Press in Norwich and he has also had short fiction appear in Lighthouse and Gorse. 

There’s no need to book, just turn up on the night to enjoy readings from Jonathan and selected undergraduate Creative Writing students. We look forward to seeing you there.
