Wed 12 Feb 2020
The National Association of Writers in Education (NAWE) is pleased to announce the appointment of Fiona Mason as its Interim Director while current Director Seraphima Kennedy is on maternity leave. Fiona will take up her role officially at the beginning of March and lead on the organisation’s work, including our annual conference, until autumn 2020.

Jonathan Davidson, Chair of the National Association of Writers in Education, said: “Following an open recruitment process which attracted a very high quality field, I am delighted to announce that NAWE’s Management Committee has appointed Fiona Mason as Interim Director to lead NAWE while our Director Seraphima Kennedy is on maternity leave. Fiona has an excellent track record in arts management and fundraising, and we very much look forward to working with her.”

Seraphima Kennedy, Director, National Association of Writers in Education, said: “We were thrilled to meet Fiona at interview and delighted to appoint her as NAWE’s Interim Director. Fiona has the perfect combination of knowledge, experience and skills to continue NAWE’s work while I am on maternity leave, and I know she is looking forward to getting out there and meeting our members. Fiona and I have been working to ensure a smooth handover, and I look forward to seeing how her valuable perspective helps NAWE flourish over the next few months.” 

Fiona Mason, Interim Director, National Association of Writers in Education, said: “I am delighted to be joining NAWE as Interim Director and excited about making a contribution to the organisation's important work; supporting, championing and advocating for creative writing in education. As an arts professional working in writing development, and as a writer, coach and writing tutor, I already benefit from membership of NAWE and value the experience of feeling part of a community of peers. I am looking forward to getting to know the membership across the coming months, especially at the conference later this year."
