I have the great fortune to spend this year with New Hampshire Humanities. We’re working on a reading and writing project with English learners. The project is A Year of New Voices,
In the Year of New Voices, professional writers meet English learners in Connections book discussion programs. Selected students will have an opportunity to work with the writer, read samples of each other’s work, look for ideas that each have as a thread through their writing. Then English learners, alongside professional writers, will read their poems, stories, and memoirs in “New Voices” readings in New Hampshire communities.
