September 2018 - Warkworth Short Story Writing Contest

Recently Warkworth Literacy Council (within a medium security prison, Warkworth Institution) held a short story writing contest.  They have been gracious enough to share the top 3 stories with us and have given us permission to include on our website.

As LLO certified trainers, Carol Risidore (formerly of The Literacy Group of Waterloo Region) and Helen McLeod (of the Hamilton Literacy Council) were instrumental in training inmates to become tutors to other inmates. Several of these tutors have now completed enough hours to fulfill the requirements necessary to become LLO trainers, capable of training more inmates who are interested in becoming literacy tutors, a perfect example  of the  'Each One Teach One' philosophy!
