Why did you decide to include your sessions in the programme of the academy?

ELT teacher 2 writer and Author Academy are on the same wavelength – our aim is to share experience and advice from established ELT writers in order to help people to develop their ELT writing skills. 

Where do you get your inspiration as an author/editor from?

Inspiration has come from all sorts of sources over the years – from colleagues (both teachers and editors), students, speakers at conferences, published materials, the world around us!
