How graded readers are commissioned

To end our series of posts covering the MaWSIG-LitSIG joint Pre-Conference Event in Liverpool on 1 April 2019, and following on from yesterday’s blog about how to write graded readers, Andrew Dilger and the OUP ELT design team designed a poster showing how Oxford University Press goes about commissioning its graded readers.

One response to How graded readers are commissioned

    ALways interesting to see how much more work goes in to producing graded readers (and any books!) than “just” the writing! I wonder how involved authors are / have to be / get to be in what happens after they submit a manuscript…?
