From the 10th to the 12th of November, the National Association of Writers in Education will celebrate its annual event in York. Proposals are now invited with a deadline of 1 May
The Annual Conference of the National Association of Writers in Education returns to York this year to celebrate its 30th anniversary. From the 10th to the 12th of November, NAWE invites writers and teachers to share their various approaches to writing and to the teaching and researching of creative writing at all levels.
Proposals should consist of a brief (100 word) outline, exactly as you would wish the session to be described in the programme, plus biographical information on all presenters (50 words each). Workshops, panel presentations and academic papers are all welcome. Please indicate the preferred type and length of your proposed contribution, eg: workshop (75 or 90 mins); shared presentation and discussion (75 or 90 mins); paper or other solo presentation (20 or 30 mins, to form part of a larger session planned by NAWE).
Decisions will be made on all proposals during June, and programme slots confirmed in writing. The full programme will be published in July and promoted worldwide.
All presenters need to register as delegates but benefit from a significant discount. Booking and payment deadline is 6 October.
The conference is the essential event for all those involved in creative writing at any level. Worldwide participants will be thoroughly welcomed in York next November.
NAWE is the one organization supporting the development of creative writing of all genres and in all educational and community settings throughout the UK. It is currently a EACWP honorary member after signing an agreement of mutual membership over the participation of our president Javier Sagarna in Bristol (November, 2014).
