Humanising Language Teaching
Writers needed for WWW readers
Editors: Brian Tomlinson and Alan Maleys
On November 1st 2004 we intend to launch World Wide Web Readers by publishing ten titles with e-Books (a web publisher based in Germany).
We then intend to publish another ten titles every three months.
The books are extensive readers aiming to provide enjoyable and engaging reading in English for non-native speakers anywhere in the world. There will be no linguistic grading and no censorship of language or topics. Writers will be encouraged to write intuitively for one of the following three levels:
As potential readers will be provided with free samples of the books writers need not be too precise in their level specification as the readers will be able to decide for themselves on appropriacy of level.
Books can be fictional or non-fictional, set anywhere in the world and of any length.
