News from TESOL: A WRITING OPPORTUNITY

MWIS member Jennifer Lebedev is currently working on the TESOL Book Publications Committee. Here is something she would like to share:

TESOL offers new and experienced authors wonderful opportunities to develop materials. Writing for TESOL Press, in particular, can be very rewarding. Titles are often planned as a series or an edited volume. Such writing projects are collaborative in nature and seek to bring the most useful, up-to-date information to English language teachers. Be sure to visit the TESOL website and follow the links to the current calls for proposals.

TESOL Press will publish two new titles in 2015. Will you be one of the authors? Perspectives on Teaching in Different Contexts will be a series of 80-page books addressing the challenges specific to teaching contexts, from IEPs to private tutoring. Contributing authors will work under series editor Andy Curtis. Another title, Integrating Pronunciation with Other Skills Areas, will be an edited volume targeting the connections between pronunciation and other skills areas. With guidance from the series editor, Tamara Jones, contributing authors will also provide strategies for instruction and practice. The deadline for proposals for both titles is 30 September 2013.
