Poems and Short Stories: Authentic Resources for English Language Learning, a collection of poems and stories written by Asian teachers, continues the work of the Asian English Language Teachers’ Creative Writing Group in existence since 2003. The current text accentuates the creation of poems and stories based on lived experience. In other words, both are means of expressing and negotiating our own life narratives or stories. Through poems and stories, students can voice their own life narratives in a relaxed way in which cognition, imagination, dialog, and experience interweave each other. To this end, the current volume attempts to demonstrate practical ways to create poems and short stories based on day-to-day encounters. We argue that both poems and short stories recognize the subjective experience of the individual; therefore, they are authentic or real-life resources for learning another language, such as English.
