The Association publishes a wide range of journals and books for the general reader and for those interested in the teaching of English at all levels.


Following on from the easing of the COVID-19 lockdown, we’re delighted to announce Oxford University Press (OUP), the publishers of English, have been able to resume the printing and mailing of the journal, and so they’ve sent out all back issues from 2020 to members subscribing to this publication. If you’ve not received these back issues, please contact us at and let us know which issues you’re missing and your EA membership reference.

Please note, if the address registered with The English Association is your work address, these back issues will have been delivered there. If you’d like to change your address (e.g. to your home address), please contact us at and confirm your membership reference and the new address for your record.

The EA team are working remotely, which means there is some disruption to our processes. We are not able to mail out hard copies of purchased publications at the moment, though we may be able to provide a soft copy. If you wish to purchase single copies of any of our publications, please email us before completing your purchase:

The English Association Newsletter is sent to every member and keeps you up to date with all of the Association's activities and news.

Our 7 Bookmarks series provide independent resources for readers wishing to broaden their engagement with literature and are available free of charge.

If you are interested in poetry then A Mutual Friend: Poems for Charles Dickens and Larkin with Poetry may well interest you.

For classroom teachers we have two dedicated journals:

  • English 4-11 is essential reading for English in the primary classroom
  • The Use of English contains a wide range of articles by teachers and researchers who represent the full spectrum of secondary English teaching

We have several publications for those involved in Higher Education and research:

Our occasional series Issues in English deals with developments in English studies and the teaching of English at all levels.

For those with an interest in the history of English studies the Association's Centenary History will be of interest, together with our archive of Presidential Addresses and Pamphlets.
