A call to support literacy 

Stacie J promotes MagazineLiteracy.orgI support John Mennell’s MagazineLiteracy.org whenever I can, and I was pleased to learn that he has started a blog. On his blog, he has discussed the topic, ‘Magazines are dead’, and that are now as much a part of the landscape to aid as any others.
   I urge others to support MagazineLiteracy.org. Last year, we promoted it via Lucire whenever we could, along with the Magazine Publishers of America (since we can’t seem to join the equivalent, which is full of Australian-parent mags anyway), and connected John with our good friend .
   Why ? Well, they are more colourful and accessible than the that we normally associate with literacy projects, and reach a wider audience. Given that’s the case, they have the potential to encourage more people to learn to read.
   John is pretty careful with funds and makes sure as much as possible go to the cause, for which he works tirelessly. So, if any folks are out there can help MagazineLiteracy.org get to its next level, please visit the site and get in touch with John.

Entries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
   With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
