LOS ANGELES, Oct. 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Viking® ( www.viking.com ) today marked new accolades and impressive milestones for its enrichment channel, Viking.TV ( www.viking.tv ). Viking.TV went live in mid-March in the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic and was conceived as a way to build community, stay connected and share positive experiences while people are staying home, rather than traveling. Now six months later, Viking.TV has broadcast more than 160 sessions featuring original cultural content and virtual Privileged Access to interesting people and places around the world. The digital platform, where all content is free to watch, has resonated well with people during this unusual year. Livestreams and archived content on Viking.TV have been enjoyed by more than two million viewers, which include past Viking travelers and Viking crew, as well as those who have not traveled with Viking. Additionally, Viking.TV was recently honored with the “Breakthrough Award for Product Innovation” in the 2020 Silver Travel Award.

“There is no doubt that we are living in an unusual time that has disrupted all of our lives. It is well known that having a daily routine is important during times of stress and isolation, so we launched Viking.TV to livestream at a set hour each day, when our guests, crew and other curious people can continue to explore the world and have a daily session of positivity and learning,” said Karine Hagen, Executive Vice President of Viking. “After just six months, we are honored to have welcomed so many esteemed viewers on Viking.TV and to have received such positive feedback. We look forward to once again traveling together, but in the meantime, we are pleased to continue fostering the Viking.TV community—with daily livestream sessions and conversations with some of the world’s most fascinating people.”

Innovative programming celebrates 50 years of Creative Writing at UEA

Beginning on 1 October, the University of East Anglia (UEA) celebrates 50 years of its pioneering Creative Writing programme.

As we head into our 50th year we are excited to launch an ambitious series of international events, projects and initiatives. Building on its extraordinary heritage, the Creative Writing 50th anniversary celebration will explore key trends shaping literature today, uncover the next generation of global voices and push the boundaries between contemporary writing and creative technology.

Professor Henry Sutton, Director of Creative Writing, said: “UEA’s Creative Writing programme continues to go from strength to strength. These initiatives are a testament to its questioning, questing spirit for knowledge, excellence and creative expression.”

International Chair of Creative Writing – Tsitsi Dangarembga

Today UEA announces its new International Chair of Creative Writing (ICCW) and Global Voices Scholarship programme, which celebrates leading writers from around the globe while continuing UEA’s tradition of nurturing the world’s most promising emerging writers. Its first chair will be the internationally acclaimed Zimbabwean novelist, playwright and filmmaker Tsitsi Dangarembga. 

Tsitsi Dangarembga’s most recent novel, This Mournable Body, is shortlisted for the 2020 Booker Prize. Supported by UEA colleagues, she will deliver an ambitious programme of literary events, classes and workshops across the African continent and in the UK during 2021-22. 

This new position of International Chair has been created through philanthropy, and will be offered to four more prominent writers over the next five years from the Asia, Australasia, the Americas and the Middle East, each with a year-long remit to find, nurture and promote new voices from that region. The Chair will be supported by UEA’s Creative Writing department to deliver events, masterclasses and workshops. The International Chair initiative will be complemented by Global Voices scholarships, offering 50 fully paid places on UEA’s competitive MA course over five years.
