Writer To Writer Award Ceremony
SCLLN Literacy Conference
March 5, 2016

SCLLN is excited to announce the winners and runners-up for the 2015 Writer to  Writer Challenge !


SCLLN received a record number of entries. We are so proud of all of the 97 learners who wrote letters.

Please join our adult learners, tutors and coordinators at the upcoming 2016 Southern California Library Literacy Network (SCLLN) Conference, to be held at the Buena Park Holiday Inn on Saturday, March 5th.

We hope you will join us for the Writer to Writer lunch, if not for the entire conference, and listen as the winner from each category reads their amazing letter!  We encourage all coordinators to invite and sponsor all of your writers and their tutors for this special event. The registration fees are an appropriate use of CLLS grant funding and would be an excellent way to recognize our writers and their tutors. Congratulations to all of our letter writers!
