Want to bring a writing group to your organization? Literacy Mid-South provides free training sessions for education coordinators at local nonprofits, churches, and schools to implement the program.

WriteMemphis is a program where each writer’s life experiences influence their understanding of the reading process, the development of their own individual voices, and the particular way the writers tell their own story. The WriteMemphis model can be used for adults and children.

Those involved in a WriteMemphis writing group will: 

  1. Develop New Listening Skills
  2. Increase Individuality
  3. Enhance Writing Proficiency
  4. Improve Reading Comprehension
  5. Raise Self-Esteem

Literacy Mid-South is providing this free training session for coordinators to implement the program. Attendees will leave with everything they need to start a writing group. Space is extremely limited!  Reserve your spot today!

As space is extremely limited, we ask that only one person per organization register.
