Writing for PETAA


PETAA publications are classroom-focused and well grounded in good pedagogy supporting best quality classroom teaching and learning practice. PETAA publications are suitable for use by classroom teachers, pre-service teachers and teacher educators.

PETAA’s range of publications, offered in print or digital form, include high quality books, PETAA Papers and other publications that lead the field in Australian English and literacy education. Many PETAA publications have gained a reputation worldwide, our texts are regular winners at the Educational Publishing Awards Australia and a number of our titles have been published overseas as international editions.

Each year, PETAA publishes:
  • three teacher professional reference books, often with website support (see Publications)
  • three PETAA Papers, which are a compilation of practical, classroom-focused articles focusing on a specific aspect of English teaching, and published as a short eight-page article with a maximum word count of 5000 words
  • an annual Teachers’ Guides to the CBCA Shortlist
  • a variety of other short website-only classroom resources created by teachers for teachers, highlighting good classroom practice.
