What’s The Font?

The Font – A Literary Journal for Language Teachers (ISSN: 2203 4412) is a journal about teaching and  learning languages at home and abroad. It looks at the topic from a more creative, literary, and humanistic perspective than the more traditional academic publications.

Who’s behind it?

The Font is run by an independent, voluntary group of writers and readers, based in several countries, who also teach languages. It is not affiliated with any institution or organisation, and is unfunded and not for profit. The Font is a venue for teachers and learners to reflect on their experiences and observations while teaching and learning languages, or while living abroad as a teacher.

What kind of writing?

The Font publishes quality short stories, articles, essays, anecdotes, poems, interviews, cartoons and other forms of creative writing which provide insight, reflection, humour, and inspiration on the theme of teaching and learning languages at home and abroad.


The Font publishes writing by language teachers, learners and translators in all countries. The Font is a venue for language teachers and learners from all walks of life, to come together and share about all aspects of this profession, through the accessible medium of story telling.
