NAWE Conference 2019: Booking closes on 31st October
Fri 8 Nov 2019 to Sun 10 Nov 2019
The NAWE conference is three days just for you. It’s time outside of the cares of daily life, away from the responsibilities of looking after others, meeting deadlines, looking for work, or applying for funding. It’s time for getting inspired, for talking about your work and learning from others. Book your non-residential/day ticket by 31 October.

We are very excited about this year’s programme, featuring leading voices in the world of writing in education in all settings. We’re thrilled to welcome guest speakers Imtiaz Dharker, Paul McVeigh and all our members and contributors. We’re also delighted to welcome contributors from Australia, Canada, Ireland, Finland, Sweden, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the US, as well as from across the UK.

Professional Development: This year, as well as launches, talks and tours, we have sessions aimed at brushing up funding skills and pitching your work; on writing for revolution, decolonising the curriculum, and teaching teenagers; and sessions full of techniques to inspire powerful storytelling in children and adults and put creative writing at the heart of the curriculum. There’s something for every writer: those working in schools, FE, HE & the wider community.

Networking & Peer Support: Writing and teaching can be a lonely business. Our conference delegates frequently tell us it’s the networking and peer support that brings them back to NAWE year after year. For some, it’s an annual dose of CPD, a chance to brush up on funding applications, or to think creatively about your classroom practice. For others, it’s the chance to share practice-based research and seek feedback.

This will be our final event in York (for a little while) before we head to Bristol in 2020. See you there!
