 It's World Spelling Day! 
(Wednesday 6th March 2013)

To celebrate I'm giving away three FREE copies of my award-winning book Teaching Spelling to English Language Learners. To win one, email me and persuade me why I should send you one. I'll be giving away a book each (including postage to anywhere in the world) to the three people who send the most persuasive answers. But hurry - entries must be received by email before midnight!

A few rules:
  • Emails to be sent to with 'WSD' in subject line.
  • Emails must be received by 23.59 GMT on Wednesday 6th March 2013
  • Emails must say in 25 words or less why you need / deserve / want the book. Also give your name and street address (sorry, books can't be sent to PO Boxes)
  • Only one entry per person or organisation
  • The author's decision is final.
  • List of winners and their entries may be published on The Spelling Blog.
Please pass the word around ...

Good luck!


  1. Obviously, I won't publish your street address on the blog!

  2. I wish I had commented on World Spelling Day! I have a petition to the National Spelling Bee to let ninth graders compete. Ninth graders should have a chance to spell too, shouldn't they? Please take the time to sign this, and hopefully we can make a change! I need 20,000 signatures, so sharing it with all of your friends and family would help too! You can sign here: Thank you so much!
