The current version of AWE is ongoing. It is unfinished, and maybe never will be 'finished'. There is much content to be added, and all suggestions for additional articles will be gratefully received. They will all be seriously considered; most may be eventually incorporated into the guide. You should read the important legal message before contributing.

The team would really value comments about the way the project works online. Is it easy to search? Have you been unable to follow a link, or to find an answer that should be there? Have you seen a way to make the database searchable that we have not included? If so - or if you have any thoughts about how we should work - consider contacting us. The simplest way is by going to Help:Feedback, clicking on the 'discussion' tab, and entering your thoughts. To comment on any one article, enter your thoughts on the 'discussion' page attached to that article.

(Note, particularly to those who value the Wikipedia philosophy: it is not possible for casual users, even logged in, to edit this site: it probably will never be. That is because the whole raison d'être of AWE is that of a pedagogic guide, and must have the authority of genuine understanding of English, as it is used in British Higher Education. Applicants to be Editors will be vetted before being admitted to the number of those allowed to edit AWE.)

The project is ongoing, and would welcome volunteers to help develop it (though there may have to be a cap on numbers). It has proved a valuable learning experience to its members already. Among those who might benefit from participation are trainee teachers, not only of English; those with an interest in computer software, particularly Wikis; and those interested in Linguistics. Teachers may feel that it could well be improved, and offer useful tips that have been found to work in explaining things to students. But first and foremost, all who want to improve the quality of their written English, or anyone within the target population who is learning English as a second, third or fourth language - indeed anyone who has used the guide and found herself (or himself) wanting to improve it, or ask questions about things it does not answer - may feel that they should offer themselves to the Project. The worst that can happen is that we will be too busy to deal with you promptly.
