I often write about all the cool, new ways to publish digitally. But of course there would be no point to any of this without literacy.
So, I just want to take a moment and give a shoutout to a few places and platforms that are helping to teach people of all ages how to read.
In New York City there’s a place called 826 Valencia, which is a non-profit that helps kids ages 6 to 18 with their creative writing skills, as well as helps them get ready for college.
Tikatok is a “digital publishing studio for students to write and publish their own work.” Currently it has projects for science, social science, and ELA (literacy).
Last is America’s Literacy Directory, which offers information for people wanting to continue their education, or people who want more education. You can search for the programs nearest to you.
