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 operating in a wide range of contexts. Detailed, in-depth reflection is most valuable. Creative Writing itself is welcome when integral to an article. The work of writers in schools – both primary and secondary – tends to be under-represented, so we do encourage such articles in particular. It is of course developmental work that we wish to highlight, not self-promotion. Consider what type of article you yourself would find most useful.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
Submission deadlines: Spring Issue: 1 February; Summer Issue: 1 May; Autumn Issue: 1 October.
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.
