MaWSIG’s Online Festival

On the 14th of December, IATEFL’s Materials Writing Special Interest Group (MaWSIG) will be holding their first online festival. Inspired by a recent online romance literary festival from Harper Collins, the festival will be a free event, open to everyone, to explore current themes in the world of English Language Teaching and materials development.

The event has a cracking line-up of professionals within the industry and because of the online format it’s open to anyone, from anywhere in the world. Recordings of the webinars will be made available after the day and you can follow what happened on Facebook and Twitter at a time to suit you.

Whilst it’s free to attend you still need to register your details for each session here so you can be sent the relevant signing in information.

The festival kicks off with a live Q&A with co-author of Headway Liz Soars at 1pm, followed by a Twitter hashtag chat (#askedit) with Karen White and Lyn Strutt at 2pm. At 3pm there will be a another live Q&A with the Head of Adult Publishing for the ELT Division at Oxford University Press, Nick Sheard. A Facebook panel chat will then take place at 4pm with Mila Rendle (Head of Consumer Publishing, Cambridge University Press), Katie Nielson (Chief Education Officer of Voxy) and Lindsay Clandfield (Co-founder, The Round). And to conclude there will be a live Q&A with Sam Missingham, Head of Events at Harper Collins UK.

It will be hard to miss, so if you’re into ELT publishing and materials development then remember to sign up!
