Event description
A free networking event for Yorkshire writers in education organised by NAWE in partnership with Leeds Trinity University and First Story.

About this Event

This informal gathering is a great opportunity to meet up with fellow writers in the region involved in creative writing in educational and community settings and swap ideas and information. There will be a chance to share experiences – the best and the not so good! – and explore areas of your work you’d like to develop. You’ll also be able to take part in a taster writing in education activity led by writer, performer and experienced creative writing facilitator Becky Cherriman. www.beckycherriman.com

This event is open to all writers working in school, community, FE and HE settings (you don’t need to be a NAWE member to come along) and is entirely free but booking is essential as places are limited.

Refreshments will be available from 5.45pm.

If you have any queries, please contact Philippa Johnston pjohnston@nawe.co.uk
