Words blown to the winds,

Words on pages, in bytes,

Words for now,

Words for tomorrow.

Where will all our words go?

Katherine lives in a world of words, gardens and education. Writing, developing ideas and training others, she has spent endless hours linking words across the pages of English Language Teaching, both for students and ELT educators.
