New Writing North has a long track record of working in schools. We are able to offer long-term projects which are writer and artist-led, engaging pupils in imaginative approaches to developing their writing. We work with inspiring professional writers who are experienced in working in school settings. We also engage teachers in developing their own creative writing practice.
Whether you are interested in stretching gifted and talented young people, or in engaging reluctant writers, we can provide you with writer-led projects in your school, including facilitating Arts Award. We also support teachers with techniques that can be used with pupils, develop insight into the process of imaginative writing, and reflection on the pedagogy of creative writing.
We are always interested in talking to teachers and schools about one-off and on-going projects and we can create bespoke projects for your school. Below are some of the ongoing ways we work with schools.
