Lessing at 100: The Writer's Quest

UEA's Celebration of Doris Lessing at 100

2019 is the centenary of the Nobel laureate, Doris Lessing. The University of East Anglia (UEA) enjoyed a long association with Lessing, where she held the title of Distinguished Fellow of Literature.

The University's British Archive for Contemporary Writing (BACW) proudly hosts her vast archive of correspondence, diaries and personal papers. 

To mark this important milestone, UEA's School of Literature, Drama and Creative Writing, in partnership with the BACW, is hosting a major international conference, an exhibition and other public events.
