We should like to thank all those who contributed so much to this highly successful event.
This day was run in partnership with Writing East Midlands, Writing West Midlands and De Montfort University. Workshops included Rhyming with Children aged 5-10, Creative Writing with Dyslexic Learners, Using Words as Play and Setting Lives on Fire – The Art of Teaching Autobiography, and many more. We received some excellent feedback, and plan to run similar events in the future.
We are also aiming to publish a set of articles relating to the workshops offered within a future edition of Writing in Education.
We have set up a Skill Sharing page
within the Writing in Schools section of this website, where you can read Paul Munden's summary of the event, download Sue Horner's presentation slides, and access a participant's blog. Anyone who participated in the day is most welcome to contribute material of their own.
