Writing in Education: Submissions

To submit an article to Writing in Education, please first refer to the submission guidelines downloadable below. Please note: submissions that fail to follow the guidelines may be ignored.


The aim of this magazine is to explore the work of writers and teachers in educational and community contexts. Its purpose is to assist the peer learning of NAWE members and their colleagues. For the autumn issue, we invite NAWE members to write on the subject of creative writing in schools. We encourage you to think broadly on this topic and address any issue relating to the development of a space for creative writing in schools and the education system. It is of course developmental work that we wish to highlight, not self-promotion. Consider what type of article you would find most useful. 


All articles will be considered by the full editorial board who will also take independent advice. Responses will generally be made within two months of the relevant submission deadline.

Books for review should be sent directly to the Reviews Editor, c/o the NAWE PO Box address. Publishers are reminded that Writing in Education does not normally carry reviews of individual works of fiction or poetry except when these have clearly resulted from a residency.

NAWE members are reminded to send news of their new publications as well as of any prizes and awards to the office for featuring on our website and in the magazine, space permitting. News items should be emailed to

Submission deadlines: Spring Issue: 1 February; Summer Issue: 1 May; Autumn Issue: 1 September.

Please note that the individual contributions to this journal do not necessarily represent the views of NAWE or even the majority of its members. We welcome responses to any of the articles and reviews including those which would seem to offer contentious opinions.
