Journeys Reading Event Mini-Grant Opportunity - By Ellie Purdy, Board Member

Would your ABE program like to host its own Journeys reading event? Take advantage of this mini-grant opportunity to make your event festive and memorable.

This spring, Literacy Action Network is proud to offer five Journeys Reading Event mini-grants, intended to support ABE programs in the implementation of a successful Journeys reading event.

At a Journeys reading event, ABE learners read their original stories and poems—many of which are featured in Journeys: An Anthology of Adult Student Writing—in front of an audience of their families and peers. 

Each mini-grant includes funds up to $300, ten copies of this year’s Journeys publication, and a toolkit to help you put on your own ABE reading event.

To apply for a mini-grant, please fill out LAN’s Journeys Reading Event application webform. Winners will be notified on a rolling basis.

To see previous Journeys Reading Events, visit the Minnesota Literacy Council’s Facebook page, and for reading video from past years, go to the MLC's YouTube site. If you have any questions about this mini-grant opportunity, please contact Literacy Action Network.
