Our Programs

Over the years, Brink Literacy Project has developed a number of innovative education initiatives focused on increasing literacy rates and utilizing storytelling to empower marginalized and underserved communities.

All our programs, courses, and curriculum are designed to embrace bottom-up solutions, empower individuals to believe in themselves, and create a feedback process that allows us to improve and refine our services. We believe that the best way to support marginalized populations and voices is to give community members meaningful ownership in their educational experience, so our creation, delivery, and improvement processes all include adaptive collaboration with stakeholders.

Frames Prison Program

The goal of the Frames Prison Program is to reduce recidivism and raise literacy rates in the US prison system. Through our graphic memoir course, we work with incarcerated individuals to develop their storytelling skills, promote literacy, spark critical thinking, and engender individual growth.

Internship Program

Publishing Internship Program

As a vital part of Brink’s mission to elevate new and underrepresented voices in the publishing arena, our internship is aimed at bringing diverse experiences to the literary table. Designed to bridge the gap between learning about publishing and working in the industry, this rigorous program allows participants to develop skills in editing, editorial writing, outreach, and marketing.

Writer Mentorship

In seeking to empower individuals through the process of storytelling, Brink offers mentorship and professional guidance to literary aficionados from all walks of life. We offer free online resources and work intensively with new and emerging writers, editorial artists, and comic creators to offer mentorship opportunities.

Education Fellowships

Starting in Fall 2022, Brink Literary Project is offering two six-month fellowships. These Education and Curriculum Fellows will spearhead new systems of implementation and creation for two of our largest educational programs: Frames Prison Program and F(r)iction in the Classroom.
