The Creativity SIG and the English, Language and Literacy SIG are holding this event to share research which explores different forms of creativity and different kinds of language creativity and artistry. The day will combine keynotes, papers and a panel discussion.

Papers are invited from established and emerging researchers covering a range of aspects of policy and pedagogy as they relate to creativity and/or the teaching and learning of English, language and literacy. All contributions are welcome, whether of completed research or work in progress, The conference which seeks to build capacity in these interrelated areas, is sponsored by the two BERA SIGs and is for all researchers, PhD and MA students, primary and secondary teachers. Paper contributions will be grouped according to content. If you would like to contribute, please email a 100 word abstract to Claire Henderson by October 5th.
