Norwich and Jakarta UNESCO cities of literature are offering a virtual residency exchange in April-May 2023 for children’s writers and illustrators who would like to explore together how to tell the

ecosystem for children’s books in each city.
The virtual residency exchange will be between:
● One children’s writer and one children’s book illustrator from Jakarta
● One children’s writer and one children’s book illustrator from Norwich
The writers and illustrators will be asked to act as a guide to their city for the other writers and
illustrators, sharing ideas and inspiration.
