NAWE Open Space asks: what is the state of play and where next for writing in education?
Tue 17 Nov 2020 to Tue 17 Nov 2020
As Lewis Carroll’s Queen of Hearts once said, “I’ve sometimes believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast”. And that’s very much the spirit of this NAWE open space, which brings together writers, writing organisations and others who make up your ever-evolving sector to explore the future.

Getting inside the challenges and opportunities we might face – as the world continues to wrestle with the uncertainty the pandemic brings, and in a post-Covid world – we hope this event will help foster the sharing of ideas, start to identify new solutions and bring us renewed hope. 

It’s open space, so the agenda gets set by participants on the day. Got an idea you want to test out? An issue you need help with? A provocation for the sector at large? Brilliant. Bring your question with you, and invite your peers from up and down the country to explore it with you. Not got a question, but keen to debate the future with some fellow writers? That’s great too.

This event is open to all writers working in education and the organisations that support and employ them. We welcome NAWE members and non-members to join us from around the UK. The only thing you need to have to take part is curiosity and a desire to invent a better future for us all!

Themes that emerge from this Open Space will help shape the NAWE Virtual Conference, 12-13 March 2021.
