NAWE Conference 2018: Residential booking closes Monday 8 October
Fri 9 Nov 2018 to Sun 11 Nov 2018
The NAWE Annual Conference explores writing in education in all settings. It is the essential UK event for all those involved in the teaching of writing, enabling writers and their colleagues in education to share their approaches to teaching writing at all levels and to debate current issues. This year's evening guest speakers will be Stuart Maconie and Jean Sprackland.

This year’s conference will showcase key outputs from Paper Nations, our Arts Council England strategic partnership. For the past two years, NAWE and TRACE at Bath Spa University have been collaborating through Paper Nations on a project to investigate good practice and barriers to writing support for young people. Our research and development has involved a programme of work with young people, parents, educators and writers. Join us to celebrate excellence in writing support for young people.

The conference features a rich mix of workshops, presentations and shared panels, plus readings and other events.  

This year's evening guest speakers are TV and radio presenter, author, columnist and journalist Stuart Maconie on Friday 9 November with poet and writer Jean Sprackland joining us on Saturday 10 November.
