Meeting Description:

The Extensive Reading Foundation is pleased to announce the Call for Proposals for Extensive Reading Around the World (ERAW-2021), to be held online from 13-15 August 2021. This event is a stepping stone towards the Sixth Extensive Reading World Congress, (ERWC6) which has been rescheduled for August 2022 in Yogyakarta, Indonesia.

We are honored to have Dr. Paul Nation, (University of Victoria at Wellington) as the plenary speaker.

Call for Papers:

As with any conference, the event will feature a variety of sessions, although due to time and technical restrictions, the number of concurrent sessions will be limited. The program committee will strive to develop a well-rounded, representative program that addresses issues related to all levels and styles of Extensive Reading.

Presenters may submit more than one proposal; however, the Program Committee may select just one per person for concurrent session events.

If you have any questions about submitting, presenting, or attending, please contact the program chair, Mark Brierley, at
