About

In the privacy of your their own home or office, Readers respond thoughtfully to the poetry, artwork and/or written assignments of students through College Guild's 25+ engaging, mugually-anonymous correspondence courses. More than 6,000 prisoners around the country have enrolled in these mail/email courses, many of whom go on to excel at university, publish their works, and do good for the community. Expertise in a particular field is not necessary, as the courses are designed to engage a variety of educational backgrounds and interests. Rather than "correcting" the students' work, our Readers provide constructive feedback, reinforcement of the learning process, and encouragement.
