Project Read at The Bridge at Main is the adult literacy program of the San Francisco Public Library. We help English-speaking adults improve their basic reading and writing skills so they may access greater opportunities in their lives. This is a friendly internet site where adult learners can share what they have written as part of their tutoring sessions or on their own.
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.
This is a moderated site, so submissions and comments will first be reviewed before being approved and published.
Adult learners submitting their writing have the option of using their first name (only) or using "anonymous" for authorship.
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.
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 email@example.com, or stop by the office with a hard copy of your writing.
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.

This workshop will offer a hands-on review of the instructional aids located in the Project Read office. We’ll brainstorm ways to enhance your tutoring sessions by using the many 3-dimensional words, letters and games which are available, and we’ll discuss the importance of including multi-sensory techniques in your instructional plan.
