A wide horizon: from ELT to a writing career



English language teaching is a profession with many pathways. Many teachers go on to become bloggers, editors, content marketers, coursebook writers or publishers. But what can you do to diversify your own career? And is it the right thing for you? In this webinar recording, George Chilton, SLB member and Creative Director at Hubbub Labs, talks about making the career shift from teaching to writing.

He goes into how to grow your experience, test the waters and blaze a trail that both excites and challenges you.

He explores:

  • What to do right now
  • How to develop your skills
  • The types of work available
  • Finding the right work for you
  • Next steps
