The Writeaway Annual Conference (22 May) this year focuses on non-fiction, aiming to reinvigorate the teaching of non-fiction reading and writing in primary schools through implementation of a creative curriculum.

Delegates will have the opportunity to hear leading voices in the field reflect upon current practices as well as presenting ideas for development and change. A key feature of the conference is a programme of workshops copresented by writers and educators, which will creatively explore different forms of writing as well as the use of film and photography. Children's work will be on display during the day.

Speakers include: Nicolette Jones, Martin Salisbury, Nicola Davies, Vivian French, Prue Goodwin, Nikki Gamble, Prodeepta Das, Julia Jarman, Richard Platt, Marilyn Brocklehurst, Michael Rosen, Jonathan Douglas, Marcia Williams, Tanya Landman and David Reedy.
