In Our Words

InOurWordsCall

In Our Words is a collection of stories written by learners, tutors, and teachers at the Nashville Adult Literacy Council. This a great opportunity for learners to practice their writing skills and to share a piece of their lives with others. Stories can be submitted anonymously. Submissions must include a permission slip signed by the author and can be turned in by mail to 4805 Park Ave., 37209, by email to info@nashvilleliteracy.org, or at one of our offices.

Stories must be turned in by Friday, October 10, 2014.

Not sure what you or your learner could write about? Here are some brainstorming suggestions!

  • Start with “I remember…” and see where the story takes you.
  • List times you helped someone.
  • List times you were helped by someone.
  • Make a list of firsts.
  • Make a list of lasts.

If your learner is not able to write their story on their own, feel free to have them dictate the story to you.
