Writing in Education No. 49
Mon 26 Oct 2009
The next edition of Writing in Education has now gone to print, featuring further articles on the 'word and image' theme. It will be available at our conference and subsequently mailed to all other members the following week (post permitting).

Issue No. 49 includes 'Through the Eye of the Pinhole - an experiment in looking' by Philip Gross. The article was submitted partly in response to the previous edition on Word and Image, but also by way of initiating perhaps a series of reflections by authors of recent publications, considering what they have learned from the making of the work - things that might feed into their own and other people's teaching practice; a kind of creative/ pedagogic 'Afterword'.

I Spy Pinhole Eye, by Philip Gross with photographs by Simon Denison, is published by Cinnamon Press this Autumn.

The full list of contributions is as follows:

Through the Eye of the Pinhole: Philip Gross reflects on his collaboration with photographer Simon Denison.
