EACWP Conference Program (UEA, 2021)

We are delighted to announce that the full program of our V International Pedagogical Conference is already available. Worldwide participants are invited to join the event co-organised by our partners from University of East Anglia

The EACWP V International Pedagogical Conference (our first virtual conference ever) will take place on-line from May, 21-23 (2021), thanks to the organisational efforts and support of our British partners from University of East Anglia (UEA).

The academic year 2020-21 marking the half-centenary of Creative Writing innovation at UEA presents an opportunity both to reflect on the development of the discipline of Creative Writing nationally and internationally and to consider how the discipline may develop over the next fifty years.

This online conference seeks to bring together PhD research students, Creative Writing tutors and graduates, writers and scholars to explore the varieties of practice in our discipline now, the points of convergence and contention, and, crucially, the opportunities for future development and the forces that may shape the nature of writing in the academy over the next several years.

Central to the conference will be an acknowledgement of the importance of literature and drama in helping us navigate challenging moments in history. Sessions will be organised into virtual panels dealing with topics connected to recent global crises, which will include some of the following themes:

  • Innovations in Creative Writing pedagogy
  • Decolonising the curriculum
  • Digital Technology and Creative Writing
  • Writing and the environment
  • Employability and the Creative Industries

Additionally, the EACWP will, simultaneously, offer a variety of one-hour Multilingual Workshops to be imparted in some of the European languages represented within the association: Czech, Finnish, French, German, Norwegian and Spanish.

The conference program is already available here and registration is also open for worldwide participants willing to participate.
