NAWE Professional Development Programme

We are delighted to announce this year's Professional Development Programme for NAWE members, which includes seminars for both writers and teachers (in partnership with Bath Spa University), and another Retreat, this time hosted by Ty Newydd, the National Writers' Centre for Wales.

After its first pilot year, the one-to-one service, Taking Strides, is being expanded and you can now contact me at any time to book a place. The feedback from members who took part in the first year was very positive, and shows that writers find it very useful to have support and objective feedback on their work in progress. Our annual Retreat has already proved very popular, which goes to show the need for space for reflection away from the pressures of teaching to help us renew our writing lives.

This year's programme also launches a new partnership with Bath Spa University, after an in-depth consultation process with writers and students in the area. We are offering seminars for teachers interested in creative writing, and seminars for writers wanting to develop work in education, museums/art galleries and in the public art sphere. We will also be liaising with other universities throughout the UK regarding the potential scope to extend this type of work.
