When the Minnesota Literacy Council (MLC) posted its annual request for submissions to Journeys 2016 this winter, nine students at Learning In Style contributed entries for the MLC’s consideration. Some wrote about what they had experienced when they first arrived in the United States. Some wrote about their families. Some shared memories of their childhood in their native country. Some expressed their hopes for a better life in this one.
Recently, we were very pleased to learn that all of the entries submitted by our students had been accepted for inclusion in this year’s edition of Journeys, which will be available by the end of May.
Congratulations to our published students, and many thanks to the MLC for providing Minnesota immigrants with a platform for their stories! The latest Journey: An Anthology of Adult Student Writing can be ordered from their web site at mnliteracy.org. Each of our authors will receive a copy.
