Volume 13 Issue 1

Dear Readers & Contributors,

Welcome to the April 2024 issue of IJELLS.

This space is for the editor’s impression and presentation of the published articles. From the ‘Creative Writing in English’ section, the short story ‘Flux’ brings a curious smile to the reader and reminds of the stream-of-consciousness storytelling technique. On the other hand ‘Spider Queen’ is action-packed and keenly visual in its storytelling design. The ‘English Literature’ section presents eight papers from ecocritical perspectives to oral traditions. The ‘English Language Teaching’ section has papers exploring the field, thus enhancing the classroom teaching experience.
