No. 82: NAWE Writing in Education Winter 2020

Editorial by Lisa Koning 

It’s Writing in Education edition 82 and we’re coming to the close of 2020. What a strange year it has been, and while back in January there were hints that the world was in turmoil (bushfires in Australia, a strange flu in a China) little did we really know what was in store for the months ahead. But as the image above represents, I like the positive message that ‘we will be back’. Such as the bird on the cover of this edition, we are looking to the future with optimism. Regardless of what gets thrown at us, the human race does have a strong capacity for resilience. For NAWE and our publications, we’ve had no shortage of contributions in 2020, and as always, a willingness to share thoughts and ideas, and to learn from experiences. And with our conference only a few months away, it is another example of our members coming together to collaborate and foster learning.

I’m thrilled that AWP (Association of Writers and Writers Programs in the US) are providing an update to Writing in Education. We have such shared interests with AAWP (in Australia) and AWP, that knowledge exchange and opportunities to attend one another’s events, are fantastic. Of course, with so much online at the moment, being able to attend conferences, even far afield, is more possible. I hope this is something we will be able to maintain.

Our Winter Edition has an interesting mix of articles. Teaching remotely and online remains a prominent part of teaching life at the moment, and Matt Beighton shares some useful tips. Andrea Mason considers how old technology can be used alongside new, while Natalie Coe reflects on teaching while out in her garden. Robert Hull has provided a thought provoking article on grammar, spelling and punctuation, after many years in the classroom. Siobhan Campbell and Meg Jensen reflection on their experiences of writing based intervention, is an interesting read. Andrew Melrose has interviewed Maggie Butt/Brooks on her new novel, and we also have some creative contributions include prose from Michael Loveday and poems from Anne Caldwell. As always, we have some great book reviews - a big thank you to Matthew Tett, our Book Reviews coordinator, and our book reviewers.

If you have any thoughts or reflections you’d like to share after reading any of our contributions, we have a Letters to the Editor section (included only when letters have been submitted). This is my fourth edition of Writing in Education and I’m delighted at the high quality of submissions we continue to receive.

I take this opportunity to wish you seasonal greetings and hope to hear from you in 2021.
