Welcome to Write Away!
The writing forum for Project Read learners.

We've redesigned our blog so that adult learners working at Project Read can share what they have written with other learners, tutors, and the public. There are a few simple guidelines to be aware of.
  1. This is a moderated site, so submissions and comments will first be reviewed before being approved and published.
  2. Adult learners submitting their writing have the option of using their first name (only) or using "anonymous" for authorship.
  3. We wish to honor the writing efforts of the adult learner/authors, so no major copy editing will be applied, but we may suggest minor corrections in consultation with the author.
  4. Only active Project Read learners are eligible to submit their writing to the Write Away blog and there are two ways of doing this: send submissions via email to projectread@sfpl.org, or stop by the office with a hard copy of your writing.
  5. The views and opinions expressed on this web site are solely those of the original authors and contributors. These views and opinions do not represent those of the San Francisco Public Library and/or the City and County of San Francisco.

This is a blog for Project Read. We are a free service of the San Francisco Public Library. We train volunteers from the community and match them with English-speaking adults who wish to improve their reading and writing skills.

We'll use this blog to share news and helpful tips. We'll add entries on a fairly regular basis so do drop by and visit us again. You can also keep up with us by copying and pasting our Atom Site Feed link into a My Yahoo page or other site feed reader.

All the best (and a smidge more), Brian
