If you would like to contribute to Writing in Education
please consider the type of article that you yourself might benefit from
reading: accounts or investigations of practice that have new things to
say, that add to the knowledge and understanding of what writers can
achieve in their work in education.
Working with young people outside of the classroom
It can seem that creativity is a dirty word these days, unless it involves accounting, and that the ability to memorize facts has overtaken the need to be innovative and inventive, but we know better than that. We know that NAWE members are out there, delivering challenging and inspired activities behind enemy lines, as it were, right under the noses of the rote learners and table memorizers. We want to hear from you inspired foot soldiers. We want to hear about your successes, your failures; about activities you've tried, after school clubs you've lead; workshops in the community; online development; activities in school that are outside the curriculum; in fact, anything that gives young people an insight into the incredible, diverse world that is writing outside of the curriculum. We want articles, top tips, case studies, interviews, writing activities, advice and so on and they can be as inventive as you want. So feel free to submit a photo essay, comic strip, flow chart, haiku or any of the more traditional journalistic forms. Contact us with article proposals now!
