The Grassroutes Commission is now ready. Click on this link to read the commission, a poetry sequence called Five Voices Leicester by Anita Sivakumaran.
Grassroutes promotes 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.
The completed Grassroutes Writers’ Gallery profiling 50 of Leicestershire’s best writers will be published in due course as well as a touring exhibition about creative writing and publishing in Leicestershire.
