Educational Writers Group

About the Educational Writers Group

On joining the Society, educational writers automatically become members of our Educational Writers Group (EWG) and receive all EWG mailings. The EWG is run by an elected committee and a professional secretary from the Society.

The committee welcomes feedback from members on professional issues and sees that relevant information is passed on to other EWG members. The committee also welcomes feedback about EWG events or suggestions of topics for future meetings. You can read about the group's aims here.


Brian Abbs

The SoA was saddened to hear of the death of Brian Abbs. Brian was considered one of the most significant ELT authors of the last fifty years. He sat on our Council and had previously served on the SoA’s Management Committee and on the EWG Committee. His passion for ELT and protecting the interests of those who write in the area will not be forgotten and he was tremendously generous to the cause. 

Many members of the Society, as well as members of staff, will remember Brian with great affection and will certainly agree with the accolade given at his memorial: "Outstanding English Language Teaching author and educator, generous friend, Labour Party loyalist, and bon viveur."
