a story about bad grammar and non-existent punctuation and my TEFL adventures

Writing for ELT magazines

I’ve always liked the idea of writing for ELT magazines (it’s the name in print thing!) but so far I’ve only made the effort to have one article published in IATEFL Voices.

This article reminded me that there are so many publications to write for. Now I just need to give myself that kick up the bum to actually put my ideas down on paper.

Another idea: if you have any kind of linguistics experience is You can apply to join the organisation and if they think your qualifications are suitable you can be a reviewer for them. You can choose from a range of books and they send them to you wherever you are (it even arrived in Cape Town) and once you have written a review you get to keep the book.

So many ideas….so little time 🙂

ELT planning

I’ve been published in a few industry magazines over the past year. Some of you might like to do the same. If so, here are a few tips. I’m no expert, but you might find them useful.

What do you mean by ‘ELT magazines’?

I mean publications in the ELT industry. Specifically, I mean online and print magazines, newsletters, and journals that you could label as non-academic (as opposed to those based on formal, academic research). Some examples include…

English Teaching Professional, Modern English Teacher, International House Journal, IATEFL Voices, British Council Voices, etc.

I’ve suggested these are non-academic as they have a more general readership. That’s not to say they don’t cover or reference academic research, just that they differ from more academic publications like ELT Journal.
