Courses such as the Writing School’s MA courses in Creative Writing (Poetry, Novel and Children’s Writing), taught by a staff of well-respected writers and tutors, who include Poet Laureate, Carol Ann Duffy and Simon Armitage, and the Department of Information and Communications’ Library and Information Management Services MA, which has trained countless school and community librarians, mean we have a wealth of experience and resources to share.
A programme of Continuing Professional Development short courses at Masters’ level has been developed which builds on the long experience of both these departments and responds to the need of teachers, librarians and freelance writers committed to creative approaches to teaching writing and reading. See CPD pages for details.
Since ACWE was launched in 2005, we have developed models for working with primary, secondary and FE pupils: from one-off events, bespoke writing days at MMU, school-based workshops to student placements projects, writer residencies and longer-term collaborations. We can offer costings and advice based on this experience on request.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details, or telephone 0161 247 1966.
We have worked with many organisations and freelance writers over the years and are delighted to share our links and experience, and to provide advice and guidance to schools and colleges about how to approach school-based projects.
Since 2000, MMU’s English Department has published journals of students’ creative work – MMU students in MUSE and pupils from partner schools and colleges in All Write! Copies of current and back-dated publications can be purchased via this website and selected versions of both MUSE and All Write! are available online for free download.
