Registration is now open for New Writing North’s Creative Writing for Teachers programme.

Creative Writing for Teachers will commence in January 2019, with five meetings over the remainder of the academic year. The popular course, which is now in its seventh year, offers teachers the chance to work with a range of professional writers and facilitators to develop their own creative writing skills. The workshops allow for both personal and career development, as well as being a space to share ideas and reflect with peers on teaching creative writing.

Creative Writing for Teachers is open to teachers of all levels and key stages. Participants have told us that taking part in the course has left them feeling more confident when teaching creative writing in the classroom.

“I’m more free with my writing and less self-conscious when sharing it. The course was inspiring and confidence building”

This year the programme will take place at Gateshead Central Library from 4.30-6.30pm on the following dates:

Thursday 31 January

Thursday 28 February

Thursday 28 March

Thursday 25 April

Thursday 27 June

The course costs £99 per teacher for the year.

Sign up using this online registration form.

Registration closes Friday 21st December.
