NAWE (National Association of Writers in Education) are looking for articles on working with young people outside of the classroom for their next newsletter. I will be co-editing the special edition, so have a look through the call out below and get in touch.
It can seem that creativity is a dirty word these days, unless it involves accounting, and that the ability to memorise facts has overtaken the need to be innovative and inventive,Â but we know better than that. We know that writers are out there, delivering challenging and inspired activities behind enemy lines, as it were, right under the noses of the wrote learners and table memorisers. We want to hear from you inspired foot soldiers. We want to hear about your successes, your failures; about activities youâ€™ve tried, after school clubs youâ€™ve lead; workshops in the community; online development; activities in school that are outside the curriculum; in fact, anything that gives young people an insight into the incredible, diverse world that is writing outside of the curriculum. We want articles, top tips, case studies, interviews, writing activities, advice and so on and they can be as inventive as you want. So feel free to submit a photo essay, comic strip, flow chart, haiku or any of the more traditional journalistic forms. Contact us with article proposals now!
This newsletter will be edited by Garrie Fletcher and Elisabeth Charis both are teachers and writers that work with young people outside of school.
Article submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org before 30th April. For anymore information please contact Elisabeth or Garrie via the NAWE email above.
