As we post each blog with a new author, we will update this page to add the bio and contact information of the new author.
We are looking for language teachers, parents, or language learners for our blog to write posts about your positive experience using BookBox in your classroom. Great posts are about children’s reception to the stories, activities on our website, and creative lesson plans based on BookBox stories. Your posts will be shared with our customers, social media and the blogging world. In addition to the public blog, we would like your feedback on stories and activities in order to improve our products. If you have a blog, we’d like you to post at least once or twice about our stories.
This blog is an ongoing project with no deadline to apply, however, a driven blogger with time management is always a plus. If interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
