WHAT NEXT? Writing in Education and Communities in 2021 and Beyond

NAWE Virtual Conference  12th & 13th March, 2021

Join us and fellow writers working in education and community settings for the NAWE annual conference, which for the first time will be online. This will be an opportunity to share, to network and to raise a glass to resilience, all from the comfort of your own home! You can expect a packed and lively programme that will include:

  • Talks
  • Panels
  • Open mic
  • Workshops
  • Author events

And we'll be thinking about the bigger picture as we explore how our sector adapts to the ever-changing times.

Moving the conference online will mean greater isolation-busting opportunities to connect with peers from around the UK and Internationally than ever before. We look forward to welcoming you!

The submission for proposals has now closed.
