Reflections: Voices of English Learners is a literary magazine of stories and poems written by students of the Literacy Council of Frederick County with their newly learned English skills.
Reflections is a united effort between our adult learners, volunteer tutors, staff, and sponsors, guided by Catherine Coundjeris, founding editor, and Julie Heifetz, founding co-editor. Catherine also serves as a volunteer Literacy Council English as a Second Language (ESL) Coordinator and instructor for our Writing Classes, where many students craft their stories for publication.
Submission to Reflections is open to all of our adult learners at the Literacy Council, including native English speakers and English language learners. We are always amazed at the excellence of writing we are presented with by students who are at different levels of language acquisition.
