Publications

ETAQ currently has two main print publications.

Words'Worth, the Association's journal, is currently published three times a year. This publication is not a formally peer-reviewed academic journal and is intended primarily as a forum for English teachers to share ideas about classroom practice. Units of work, lesson resources, and opinions about current curriculum issues are all welcome. 

A detailed  guide to contributors is available here and can also be found inside the back cover of any issue of the journal.

The current editor of Words'Worth is:

 

In addition, email is used for communication with members.

ETAQ E-pistles are email bulletins distributed on an as-required basis. In recent years around 30 issues have been distributed each year.

ETAQ members also receive copies of English in Australia. This is the journal of the Australian Association for the Teaching of English (AATE), the national English teacher body with which ETAQ is affiliated.  This is a peer-reviewed academic journal which welcomes articles in any field of English, language and literacy education.
