About

In the privacy of your their own home or office, Readers read and respond thoughtfully to the poetry, artwork and/or written assignments of students through College Guild's 25 engaging, mugually-anonymous correspondence courses. Thoughtful responses include observations, suggestions, rhetorical questions and constructive critiques. 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. A deep feeling of reward comes to College Guild's Readers who often receive through our office letters of deep gratitude from students.
