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.

Join Your Fellow Tutors at a Tutor Roundtable

Tutor Roundtables are offered monthly and provide our volunteers with an opportunity to share their experiences, ideas, and successes with other tutors and Project Read staff. These informal meetings are a great way to learn new instructional strategies and obtain all kinds of valuable tutoring tips from fellow tutors. Here is a schedule of upcoming Roundtable meetings:
  • Tuesday, January 6 -- 6:00 PM
  • Saturday, February 7 -- 1:00 PM
  • Tuesday, March 3 -- 6:00 PM
  • Saturday, April 4 -- 1:00 PM
  • Tuesday, May 5 -- 6:00 PM
  • Saturday, June 6 -- 1:00 PM
All Roundtable meetings take place in the Project Read conference room on the 2nd floor of the Main Library. Refreshments are provided. Please call the office (415-557-4388) if you plan to attend any of these meetings.
