Redlands Library :: “Year of the Writer” Launched with Edison International Grant

“Year of the Writer” Launched with Edison International Grant
Redlands Reads: May 2018

Everyone has a story to share, but for many, writing is a challenge. To help adult learners reach their literacy goals, the Friends of the A K Smiley Public Library applied for and received a $5,000 grant from Edison International. The grant is funding two writing workshops to help adult learners and their tutors in new writing strategies, and updates to the computer class curriculum to include a new writing module.

Using their new writing skills, learners are encouraged to write their personal stories. The Redlands Adult Literacy Program will publish an anthology of the learners' works and share these works with the community. Writing is key to communicating with employers, teachers and family members, and can be a lasting legacy. Many thanks to Edison International for their continuing support!  READ MORE >>
