This month we welcome several new authors to the Transliteracy Blog. They'll introduce themselves over the next few days and weeks, and you'll enjoy their varied perspectives and insights into this research. Please welcome Tia Azulay, Heather Conboy, Gareth Howell, Anietie Isong, Jess Laccetti, Kirsty McGill, Kate Pullinger and Christine Wilks. I will of course also continue posting, so there will be 9 writers in all. Please post your comments and views as the spirit moves. Enjoy!
