It’s been a quiet week over at ELTjam towers, what with people on holiday or travelling the world on business. But even when we’ve not been doing much writing, we’ve always been doing lots of reading. Here’s a rundown of what’s caught our attention this week.

If you’ve not been reading JJ Wilson’s insightful, entertaining posts on the Reallyenglish blog, then you’ve been missing out. Here JJ ponders what language students could learn from Toni Morrison, Chomsky, Darwin, Einstein and other geniuses.
The role of the author in ELT publishing continues to be a topic of fierce debate in various corners of the web. Here, Nicola Prentis asks if there’s a difference between being a writer and being a ‘content creator’. From the excellent Simple English blog.
