Connections “New Voices” is an extension of the Connections reading and book discussion program, bringing an opportunity to students learning English to develop their own stories.Through “New Voices,” professional writers meet immigrant writers, learn from each other, edit words for power and clarity, and explore ways that  bilingual writers bring new creativity to expression in English. In “New Voices” readings, writers introduce and read with new writers from around the world. Please come for readings, refreshments, and conversation. Free and open to the public.

To support students and teachers as they write, New Hampshire Humanities created Tell Me More: Encouraging and Developing the Voices of English Learners, a handbook of essays on writing with students, reflections on how we write and why we write, and instruction on ways to discover stories and write them with clarity. Tell Me More was written by ESL teachers, Connections facilitators, and writers.
