Teachers who write
The Creative Writing for Teachers programme brings together like-minded peers from across the teaching profession, allowing participants to take the time to develop their own creative writing practice, share ideas, and reflect on their creative writing teaching.
We provide a relaxed and informal environment for teachers to explore their individual creativity, building confidence and inspiring imagination for you to take back to the classroom.
The programme ran annually from 2012-2019, it started when we collaborated with Northumbria University to support a PhD by Dr. Caroline Murphy called Practice, Pedagogy and Policy: the influence of teachers’ creative writing practice on pedagogy in schools.
This piece of research evidenced what we have demonstrated throughout over 20 years of work in schools: that teachers who practice their own creative writing are more confident when teaching it.
