Cities of Literature get together in Dunedin

From Standing Room Only, 1:33 pm on 5 November 2017

Dunedin is bringing together high flyers from numerous UNESCO Cities of Literature for a week of conversations and debates about creativity, and how the cities can work more closely together. Dunedin remains New Zealand's only official City of Literature - though Wellington is keen to share that prestigious designation. Dunedin is hosting the Creative Cities Southern Hui 2017, which starts on the 28th of November. Lynn Freeman meets Nicky Page, Director of the City of Literature, and one of the invited speakers, poet Craig Cliff, the 2017 Robert Burns Fellow at the University of Otago, and asks them whether this will be just another talk-fest?
