NAWE 2024 Conference – Writing to Connect 

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

(9am to 5pm, both days)


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. 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.

Proposals should be submitted via Submittable using this link.



The deadline for proposals is Friday 31 May 2024 with selection being made by 30 June 2024, and notifications being sent out by Friday 12 July 2024.
