Welcome to Write Away the brand new
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.

Annual Tutor-Learner Recognition -- June 7, 2007

Please save this date:
Thursday, June 7, 2007
6:00 - 8:00 p.m.
Project Read's Tutor-Learner Recognition


How has your experience as a learner or tutor
changed your life?

At this year’s recognition event, we would like to encourage both tutors and learners to think about how your life has changed since becoming involved with Project Read. Please write a brief (one page or less) description about a positive experience you have had as a tutor or a learner. If you like, you may share what you have written during the program that evening. Here are just a few ideas that tutors and learners might consider writing about.


1. What was it like for you when you first started at Project Read, and how is it different now?

2. In what ways has your learner or tutor made a difference in your life?

3. What have you learned from working with your adult learner or volunteer tutor?

Please send your submissions, electronically if possible, to Richard by May 18, 2007. You may also bring him a floppy disk or hard copy.


Formal invitations to this June 7th event will be coming your way later in the spring.
