Small Town Stories: Creative Writing Course for ELTA Teachers

Creative Writing for ELTA Teachers was the professional development course organized by ELTA and supported by the American Embassy. Not many teachers in Serbia have the opportunity to take such a course during their university studies. Designed for those teachers who love to write in their spare time, Creative Writing for ELTA Teachers was an effort to help them pursue their passions. It was designed to strengthen writing skills, ignite imagination, and encourage new pedagogical approaches to language teaching.

This publication is devoted to teachers from Serbia who love writing so much that they took part in a Creative Writing Course, worked hard to improve their writing skills, developed creative writing activities for their students, and were brave enough to share their stories with you.

Join us for a public reading during the 14th ELTA conference in May where the authors will read selected portions of their published work. In the meantime, enjoy reading their stories!


P.S. Please wait for a few seconds while the file load. This may depend on your internet speed.

We want to thank the speakers, facilitators, and of course, participants for your contributions which made this Conference a success.

Congratulations! We look forward to working with you all in the coming years.


Regional Access Teachers’ Conference Opened Today

U.S. Embassy Deputy Chief of Mission, Gordon Duguid, and State Secretary at the Ministry of Youth and Sports, Nenad Borovcanin, spoke at the opening of the Regional Access Teachers’ Conference ‘Taller in Tolerance’ held today at the Moskva Hotel in Belgrade.

The three-day conference has gathered fifty Access teachers from Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Kosovo and Macedonia to develop practical English lessons and projects that facilitate cross cultural understanding, promote ethnic and religious tolerance, appreciate diversity and multiculturalism, and foster empathy. Funded by the U.S. Department of State and implemented by the U.S. Embassy Serbia and the English Language Teachers’ Association (ELTA), the Access program provides English language instruction to 13–15 year-old students from disadvantaged backgrounds.

The conference organised by the Regional English Language Office (RELO), the English Language Teachers’ Association (ELTA) and the U.S. Embassy Serbia gives the opportunity to bring together teachers from across the region to work towards the one shared goal: a multi-ethnic and tolerant society.
