For writers of materials for learners and teachers
Our Educational Writers Group (EWG) was set up in 1964 to:
- Protect the interests of educational authors in professional matters, especially contracts, rates of pay, digitalisation and copyright;
- Keep its members informed about developments in education, curriculum, TEFL, digital media and government policy;
- Lobby for adequate funding for books in schools, colleges and libraries, and for well-stocked public libraries and professionally-staffed libraries in all educational institutions;
- Encourage publishers in all media to respect the highest professional standards in educational writing, see our guidelines;
- Enable educational writers to get together in congenial surroundings.
Members of the SoA who work in the education sector writers automatically join EWG and receive all emailings when they join the SoA.
The EWG is run by an elected committee and a professional secretary from the SoA, Bryony Hall.
We welcome feedback from members about professional issues and we ensure that relevant information is passed on to other EWG members. We also welcome feedback about EWG events and/or suggestions for future meetings. Get in touch.
