Of all the calls for papers that find their way in my inbox, I think that this one is one of the most original: English Language Teacher Education and Development (ELTED), the open access peer-reviewed journal published by produced by the Language Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LLTA) Research Group of the Centre for Applied Linguistics, University of Warwick, are asking for contributions for a special issue titled Innovative Writing in English Language Teacher Education and Development.
The purpose of the special issue is to give space for new, creative and unconventional ways through which “teachers and teacher educators can communicate about their experience, finding their own voices and expressing themselves”. These might include narratives, podcasts, short fiction, poems, hyperlinked material, comic strips, as well as conventional articles on non-conventional writing.
Expressions of interest should be emailed to Dario Banegas (D.Banegas[at]warwick[dot]ac.uk) and Richard Smith (R.C.Smith[at]warwick[dot]ac.uk) by 10 September 2015. These proposals should be around 200 words long and should state the content of the proposed contribution, its basic structure, what will make it innovative, and why this innovation is justified. Both the expressions of interest and the full contributions which will follow will be peer-reviewed.
|Deadline for expression of interest||10 September 2015|
