Hi! A hearty welcome to the Literature in Language Teaching SIG.
We started up this group to encourage and promote the use of literature in the language classroom. Literature provides real content to engage and to motivate our EFL students.

We publish a high quality peer-reviewed Journal, which has now gone international, with submissions from authors in various countries. The journal is cited far and wide too. Publish with us, and share your ideas not just nationally, but globally!

In addition to the Journal, we arrange events at PanSIG, JALT National, and held our first solo event in 2014, a one-day conference in Aichi. More coming....
