A Writing For Pleasure Manifesto
This weekend we were fortunate enough to attend and talk at The Oxford Writing Spree. It was a meeting of teachers, writers and writer-teachers who are passionate about the potential for a Writing For Pleasure pedagogy.
There was a fantastic range of people who spoke on this subject. These included, amongst others:
- Nikki Gamble @nikkigamble
- Teresa Cremin @TeresaCremin
- Liz Chamberlin @liz_loch
- CLPE (Louise Johns-Shepherd & Charlotte Hacking) @clpe1 @Loujs @charliehacking
- Claire Williams @_borntosparkle
- Martin Galway @GalwayMr
- Tim Roach @MrTRoach
- Ed Finch @MrEFinch
- Avron (Alicia Stubberfield) @arvonfoundation
- Adam Guillain @aguillain
- Pie Corbett @PieCorbett
To take this meeting further, we have produced a Writing For Pleasure manifesto. We would like to invite the community to respond to it. To stretch, expand, critique, question and champion the different aspects that have been included. This is so we can start conversations and build on the consensus that was beginning to form at the Spree.
- If you’d like to give an informal response to the manifesto, please leave a comment below.
