NAWE Conference 2017

We hope all conference delegates travelled home safely, revelling in the warmth, learning and fellowship from our conference in York.

A huge and resonant thank you to everyone who travelled from near and far to present, take part in or engage with some of the incredible work members are carrying out across the UK and internationally. We’d also like to thank student delegates who attended, as well as our sponsor, York St John University and all of our brilliant readers.

An evaluation form is available here below for you to download. We’d love to have your feedback on the event so we can make sure it’s even better next year. 

All contributors (and indeed other delegates) are warmly invited to submit articles based on conference sessions to the NAWE Magazine, Writing in Education. The deadline for submissions is 1 February 2018 via Submittable. Submissions guidelines can be found here.

We look forward to continuing the conversation with you all over the coming months. Please stay in touch by email, Facebook or Twitter @NaweWriters!

"wonderfully well organized, and such a pleasure to be at and to meet up with so many good friends"

"It's been the best thing I've done all year. And given me such inspiration to meet so many generous practitioners with ideas and tips in such diverse areas. I've even been writing solidly since I got back too!"

"It made a real difference to where I currently am with things. And it's been wonderful to connect with warm, generous people and the fabulous work that NAWE does."  

"I love the diversity of approaches. I very much enjoyed the Conference and have brought home much food for thought."
