SATEFL event in Edinburgh, 2nd December with Susan Holden

‘From ideas to reality: making critical choices’

We are very pleased to have Susan Holden talk at our SATEFL event at Edinburgh School of English.

Susan Holden is based in Callander, where she runs a small ELT publishing company.  She has had a long and varied career in the ELT world, involving  teaching, teacher training, writing, editing and publishing. This has included work in Central and Eastern Europe at a time of transition and change in the 90s, and in Latin America (especially Brazil) for over a decade. As editor of MET magazine for over 15 years, and ELT Publishing Director at Macmillan and then Prentice Hall, before setting up her own company twenty years ago, she has seen the ELT writing and publishing world from a number of different viewpoints – both positive and negative.
