So the accompanying posts and pages may be relevant to one role or the other. Or both.
The two roles do have something fundamental in common: my love of language, especially the written word. I’m fascinated with its potential to clarify meanings and deepen understandings. Literary language can do this for readers in particularly intense ways. But nearly everything that happens in any organisation has a communicative aspect. How well its members interact may depend importantly on how well texts of various sorts (reports, submissions, newsletters, etc.) are written and edited. I have a stake in that, as well as in the production and circulation of my own books.
So this site won’t be confined purely to literary matters. Sometimes it will engage with organisational communication, curriculum development, the teaching of English, or other topics.
