James Ball –  Keynote Session
We are delighted to welcome award winning journalist James Ball to the conference. Our team will be discussing with him his most recent book, the highly acclaimed Post-Truth: How Bullshit Conquered the World, his account of “the slow rise of a political, media and online infrastructure that has devalued truth”.

James has worked in political, data and investigative journalism in the US and UK for BuzzFeed, The Guardian and the Washington Post in a career spanning TV, digital, print and alternative media. His reporting has won the Pulitzer Prize for public service, the Scripps Howard Prize, the British Journalism Award for investigative reporting, The Royal Statistical Society Award and the Laurence Stern Fellowship, among others. 

Jonathan Edwards – Workshop
Join Costa award-winning poet Jonathan Edwards at the 'Teaching poetry and creative writing at KS3 and KS4' workshop.  Jonathan will be drawing on his experience as a writer and teacher to explore some exciting and enjoyable approaches to teaching poetry and creative writing at key stages 3 and 4.

Liz Cardiff – Seminar
Liz will be leading on the 'Approached to Non-Fiction Texts at GCSE' seminar. Liz will explore how writers manipulate language for effect and how students can access and appreciate their craft. Resources and strategies for teaching the reading examination skills relevant to all boards will be presented, alongside additional ideas for early preparation at key stage 3 and 4.  There will be direct reference to ways in which the development of reading skills can transfer to students’ own writing in the examination.

The full programme of events is available from the NATE website.
