In response to the strength of UEA as a centre of creative writing and literary practice, and in
recognition of the work of the writer W.G. Sebald, the Sainsbury Centre presents a two day
programme of talks and writing engaging with the themes of writing with images and from objects.
The study evening sees four experts exploring how text and writing across different forms can
respond to objects, photographs and moving imagery in varied and inventive ways.
- Renowned poet Andrea Holland and novelist Patricia Mullin will speak on writers’ responses to material artefacts and objects.
- Clive Scott, Emeritus Professor at UEA, scholar and writer on the relationship between photography and translation, will speak on the play of photography in W.G Sebald’s writing and his own work with creative translation.
- Dr Nick Warr, Curator of Photographic Collections at UEA, will present on artists’ textual responses to photographs and moving images.
Following the study evening join us for a special writing workshop led by poet and UEA creative writing lecturer Andrea Holland, whose work draws richly from the visual.
