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.

Help Us Plan a 25th Anniversary Celebration

2008 Marks the 25th Anniversary of Project Read

We’d like to put together a team of learners and tutors to help us plan an exciting event to be held this fall. If you would like to participate as a member of this planning committee (probably involving no more than one meeting a month to start) please let us know by calling (415) 557-4388. If you have further questions, please ask for Randy.

We are hoping to make this a special celebration which everyone will enjoy, but to do so we will need your help.

To get you in the mood, here’s a link to our January 2004 newsletter which featured pictures from our 20th Anniversary Party (on pages 8 & 9). Just click on the thumbnail below.
