Writing for the GA

| More

The Geographical Association publishes a large and varied range of resources on many aspects of geography and geographical education. These offer opportunities for geography educators to share their practice, ideas and research with the wider geography community. Being an author enhances your own professional development as well as providing support for others. This page explains how you can turn your ideas into print, and how the GA will support you in the process. We would like to give as many members as possible the opportunity to write, and particularly to encourage new authors.

Read this article from Richard Bustin about his experiences writing an article for Teaching Geography. He encourages teachers to add their input to the voice of the GA.

Writing for the GA website

Writing for the GA website is a good place to start. Lesson plans, classroom resources, news items, event reports, teaching tips and case studies are just a few examples of content submitted by GA members in the past. We are building up our resources section. If you have a resource you would like to share email milan@geography.org.uk.

Writing for GA Magazine

GA Magazine is a 32-page full colour magazine sent out to all members every term. We welcome a variety of contributions including event reports and listings, Branch updates, news items and longer articles. Writing guidelines are provided to help you structure your piece.

Writing for GA publications

If you are a more experienced author would like to write something more substantial than a journal article you are welcome to submit a publications proposal for consideration by the Publications Board. We suggest that you discuss your proposal with the Publications, Journals and Content Manager before submitting it. Email rtotterdell@geography.org.uk.
