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.

Continuing Ed. Class for Tutors - April 29

Wrangling for Writing Success

Presented by Amy Prevedel,

Director of the Oakland Public Library Adult Literacy Program

Tutors, bring your questions and concerns about writing instruction and Amy will provide precisely the tips you need to help your learner…

* Move past the fear of misspelling when writing.

* Dispel any initial nervousness and actually get started with writing.

You will also learn how to respond to a learner’s writing in ways that encourage even more writing (while still addressing errors).
