Wonderful news - worth all the hard work. Congratulations on joining the UNESCO Creative Cities network. I'm so looking forward to seeing you again and visiting Heidelberg at some stage in the future. We will be sending formal congratulations later today but I had to send this early.

Iowa City
Welcome to you and Heidelberg to the Creative Cities Network and to the Cities of Literature sub-network. We are a close-knit group that has begun in the last year to leverage our respective designations to do some wonderful collaborative projects, and we here in Iowa City look forward to learning more about your city and finding ways to expand those collaborations with you.

Gemeinsames Glückwunsch-Schreiben der Literaturstädte

Dear Friends,

On behalf of the seven existing UNESCO Cities of Literature, we are delighted to welcome you to the UNESCO Creative Cities Network. Each of the existing cities has been through the excitement and anxiety involved in bidding to join the network and you have our heartfelt congratulations on the successful outcome of your hard work and inspiration. We very much look forward to working with you over the coming years and hope that you enjoy the moment of accreditation and that your celebrations go on late into the night! The UNESCO Cities of Literature network is a closely knit group of cities whose differences of size, language, geography and history are overwritten by our shared commitment to literature (reading, writing, literary translation, publishing, teaching and much more). Our commitment is to celebrate literature as a means of bringing people together, increasing tourism, promoting education, freedom of expression and the public realm. We have all found that the real benefit of achieving the UNESCO Creative City accreditation comes after the party, when the planning for future projects begins. We will look forward to talking to you then and congratulations once more from all of the existing cities of literature.
Chris Gribble (Norwich City of Literature) on behalf of Dublin, Edinburgh, Iowa City, Krakow, Melbourne, Norwich, Reykjavik
