NAWE Online Conference 2024 – Writing to Connect 

Friday 8th November & Saturday 9th November 2024, Online

(9am to 5pm, both days)


The call for proposals has now closed.

The NAWE Conference is an opportunity for NAWE Members and others to share their various approaches to creative writing and its teaching and facilitation at all levels and in all settings. It will be taking place online via Zoom this year with regional face to face gatherings being held around the UK in the run up to the conference.

You are invited to submit proposals for presentations (including academic papers), discussions/seminars or workshops.

Sessions can be presented by more than one contributor. Presentations or discussions should last no more than 30 minutes. Workshops should last no more than 60 minutes and should be designed for between 15 and 30 participants.

Please provide a brief (100 word) outline or your presentation, discussion or workshop, exactly as you would wish the session to be described in the programme, plus biographical information on all those involved (50 words each).

All presentations presented at the conference will be further considered for publication in NAWE’s magazine, Writing in Education. Reports of discussions/seminars and description of workshops will also be considered.

Presentations and discussions will be recorded for access post-Conference for a limited period; by submitting a paper we understand that you agree to this.

Please note that anyone involved in a presentation, discussion or workshop will need to attend the Conference as a delegate, paying a reduced fee. You can view these fees here. Early Bird rates available until Saturday 21 September 2024.

Proposals should be submitted via Submittable using this link.



The call for proposals has now closed. Selection will be made by 30 June 2024 with notifications sent out by Friday 12 July 2024.
