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.

Reading Minds Video Now Online

 (The links and some of the text on this post were updated on May 14, 2014 by Brian)

Howdy Folks,
The powerful short film Reading Minds is now online at Current TV and Google Video. It was created for Current TV by Bay Area filmmaker Kevin Epps. It offers a window into the inspiring work of Project Read - the adult literacy program of the San Francisco Public Library. It portrays the challenges and triumphs of Leon Veal and Maurice Roberson, two adult learners who have improved their basic literacy skills and continue to achieve important life goals. For more information about Project Read of the San Francisco Public Library, please go to www.projectreadsf.org.

 You can view the film by clicking the Play Button below. Enjoy, Brian

Below are image snapshots from newsletter articles written by or about Maurice or Leon. We will provide links to the original newsletters in the near future - once we have created an online newsletter archive.
