Places to publish guest blog posts about TEFL

Here’s a list that I came up with after a couple of hours of research. If I’ve missed or wrongly categorised any, or if you’d like to let us know why one blog especially deserves people’s guest posts of any particular kind, then please let me know. To get that process started, if you want to write something satirical, disparaging of EFL exams or analytical about TEFL qualifications, TEFLtastic is the place for you:

  1. Thanks for the mention! Teaching Village is thrilled to receive guest posts from teachers, and I’m always happy to work with teachers who are a bit nervous about publishing online (because they’re unsure of their English or because it’s the first time, or whatever reason).

    Thanks for noticing! Due to that enthusiasm and also being an all round star, have promoted you to top of the list (which is otherwise in a somewhat random order).

  3. Awwww, so sweet!

    Thanks for the promotion, and the kind words :)

  4. This post seems like a great resource. I look forward to exploring these sites a bit more. Thanks!

  5. alexcase says:

    Thanks Crystal. Have just posted a similar list of TEFL magazines, journals and websites too.
