Series: Write On!
Authors: Literacy Unlimited
Collection: Learning Materials
This is an annual publication that showcases writing by adult learners at Literacy Unlimited, a community organization based in the Montreal suburb of Pointe Claire.
This year, all learners were invited to submit a piece about a “first” that they had experienced. Their responses include descriptions of the first day on a new job, the birth of a child, and the first time playing softball.
One learner wrote about meeting her literacy tutor for the first time while a learner who grew up in Sri Lanka described seeing snow for the first time.
The authors note that the call for submissions for the publication drew the greatest number of responses since Literacy Unlimited began publishing Write On! in 2006.
