Save the Creative Writing A Level

The Creative Writing A level ignites a passion for writing and reading. It develops creative thinking, critical reading, articulate writing and mature personal self-reflection - all highly valued by employers. It prepares students for the 83 UK Higher Education Institutions which offer BA, MA and PhD study in Creative Writing. It is rigorous and challenging; it gives young people a voice; it is popular with students, teachers and parents; it is respected by Universities and nationally known writers; it is supported by organisations including The National Association for Writers In Education, The English Association, The National Association for the Teaching of English and The Common English forum. The decision to axe it is political rather than educational or pedagogic.
