Doing some creative writing critique

Four of our BA English students will work with the Haringey students to edit a literary magazine, ‘Haringey Unchained’: a platform for high-quality original creative work in various forms: prose, poetry, illustration and photography.

In addition to the magazine, a larger collection of submissions can be found online at https://haringeyunchained.wordpress.com/.

So, if you are into writing, illustration, photography and would like your work to be considered for the ‘Haringey Unchained’ magazine and blog and reach a wide audience, please contact our four Middlesex students coordinating the project for more information:

We are very excited about our forthcoming (FREE!) Integrating English conference for English teachers which be taking place at Middlesex University on the 11th of November. It will be immediately followed on the 12th by the NATE (National Association for the Teaching of English) post-16 conference which we are also hosting at Middlesex.

This will be our fourth annual Integrating English conference. It will be a one-day event with a mix of talks and interactive workshops, led by HE academics and teachers, designed to offer support for teachers and provide new tools and techniques for studying English.

These events have been very successful with teachers in the past and we have received very positive feedback on previous events. You can see some feedback from last year’s conference in Oxford on the Integrating English events page 

You can find more information on this year’s conference, and a booking form, at the Integrating English Conference 2016 page

Meanwhile, here are some of our speakers:

(Andrea Macrae, Marcello Giovanelli, Billy Clark, Nigel McLoughlin, Marina Lambrou)

We’re looking forward to  another fun and productive day exploring ideas for teaching English
