Writers in Schools Agencies

There are a number of agencies in the UK organizing writers' visits to schools in their area. NAWE convenes a group of those who manage such work, in order to exchange good practice.

For schools not served by such an agency, or wishing to contact writers directly, NAWE maintains a Professional Directory of member writers who are experienced in this field.
