Writing in Education
The NAWE magazine always features new work by writers in schools, a source of inspiration for colleagues in the field.
NAWE member Jackie Wills writes: ‘Over the past 15 years or so of running workshops, I’ve gathered a large number of writing exercises. The most tried and tested now amount to three A4 books’ worth. I am always devising new exercises of my own, mainly to keep myself interested – there’s nothing worse than going over old ground constantly. I also look out for exercises tested by other writers and there are a number in my A4 books that I’ve cut out of NAWE magazine features by writers about specific projects. This practical focus is invaluable when a writing exercise is explained and examples of how it works are included. Good writing exercises take off, don’t they, like viral marketing, and pop up in the most unlikely places.’
The magazine also includes articles by teachers - working with writers or introducing writing projects of their own.
The recent edition includes Sarah Lucas on the success of a school writing group project, and Fiona Linday presenting the results of her lunchtime writing club.
