METM22 keynote speakers confirmed


We are delighted to announce that Jon Andoni Duñabeitia and Sally Orson-Jones will be our keynote speakers at METM22.

A full professor at Nebrija University in Madrid, Jon Andoni is a cognitive scientist of language who studies, among other topics, how multilinguals store, manage and process their languages. Widely published on literacy, bilingualism and the cognitive science of language, he is also an in‑demand expert in the Spanish media.

Sally is a literary editor and writers’ mentor based in Brighton. She has worked as a book doctor for authors including Sarah Waters, Viv Albertine and Sophie Haydock. She loves the process of developing works in progress, brainstorming with authors and cracking problems. She always tells her authors that once they start working together they become a team – and that’s the real joy of the job for her.
