Working with young people outside of the classroom.
Final call for submissions for the summer edition of the NAWE magazine. We’ve already had some great articles in and some excellent proposals so make sure you get them in before the deadline, full details below.
NAWE (National Association of Writers in Education) are looking for articles on working with young people outside of the classroom for their next magazine. I will be co-editing the newsletter, so have a look through the guidelines 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, but we know better than that. We know that NAWE members 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 you’ve tried, after school clubs you’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!
Submissions need to be with us by the 30th of April 2013.
This magazine 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 as soon as possible. For any more information please contact Elisabeth or Garrie via the NAWE email above.
The NAWE website can be found NAWE
If you run a group but are daunted by the prospect of writing an article please get in touch with us, we may be able to help or even suggest a different format that enables you to share successful ways of working.
