self-publishing for elt professionals

A note from iTDi Faculty, Dorothy Zemach about her June iTDi course, Self-Publishing for ELT Professionals…

I’m looking forward to another term of Self-Publishing for ELT Professionals! We’ve had some great books and materials come out of this course.

Because there’s a lot to cover in a month, I do ask that you

a) have a project in mind, and
b) have some of that project written already.

You don’t need to be finished; you could have one article or half a chapter already written and the rest still in your head. You just need to have at least a few pages to practice formatting with.

Some projects don’t lend themselves to self-publishing (books that have heavy art or audio requirements, for example), which is why I like to check in with people before they register for my course. If I don’t think your idea is well-suited for self-publishing, I will let you know before you sign up.

I’ll be working on a book during the course as well. My project this year is an adapted short story as a graded reader. I hope you’ll join and share your project, too!
