English Hub: Reading & Writing for Pleasure

Reading and Writing for Pleasure

Venue: The Open University, Walton Hall, Milton Keynes MK7 6AA

£45.00 per person

Children and young people’s enjoyment in reading and writing is in decline. In response, the Open University is holding a conference which focuses on effective approaches to encouraging children and young people to read and/or write for pleasure. Drawing on a recent 3-year OU study, participants will be offered opportunities to explore the research findings, consider the consequences for practice and get involved in workshops that offer inspiring and practical ways forward. The Harper Collins Reading for Pleasure Awards in association with the OU and UKLA will be announced, and the Norfolk Children’s Book Centre and UKLA bookshops will enrich the day.
