Hello again! A year ago, I popped in to tell you about Scripting Change and my first published short story. Hard to believe, now an entire year has passed, and I have a new story appearing in another edition.
BEYOND THE WORDS
The community writing project Scripting Change is incredibly excited to announce the release of their second anthology: Beyond the Words! Writers, artists, and editors have donated their talents to create this project for charity. Proceeds from sales of this book will benefit three regional literacy organizations:
- Read for Literacy, in Northwestern Ohio, provides learning opportunities for readers of all ages and backgrounds, with three tailored programs: Creating Young Readers, for children in kindergarten through 2nd grade; Adult Basic Education; and English Language Learners, for non-native English speakers.
- Literacy Action, in Atlanta, Georgia, offers an incredibly wide array of literacy programs for adults — from literal reading assistance, to workplace literacy, family literacy & education, and much more, this organization provides its community with crucial support, enhancing so many lives!
- Page Ahead, in Seattle, Washington, focuses its literacy efforts on children, allowing elementary-school children to browse book fairs at the end of the school year & choose their own books for the summer — which are then provided to them by Page Ahead! They bolster this program by also working with parents, helping them engage their young readers.
