This site and you kind, gentle people are the gifts who keep giving.
Almost every day, Young Writers Project receives a small donation from one of you and we can't thank you enough.
Your continued financial support of our work helps pay for our time spent giving youths encouragement on youngwritersproject.org or leading a workshop. Or organizing an event like last week's Vermont Writes Day when literally thousands of youths, teachers and administrators STOPPED what they were doing and wrote to prompts created by YWP's Youth Leaders. Fun was had by all. Audible groans in schools because the time was up and they had to stop writing. Imagine.
We are continuing to develop plans for our formal online instruction program to youths anywhere for a small membership fee to cover our costs. We can say that we are now looking for partners -- knowledge partners and financial partners -- to help us do our final work to launch by September 2016. We are so excited by the interest from some remarkable organizations around the country.
And don't forget: Our free, online respectful teen writing community is open to ALL youths ANYWHERE, so if you know some youths who like to write or who want to get better at it, send them to youngwritersproject.org. They will get feedback, support and may get published all over including on our showcase magazine, The Voice!
Cheers to all of you,
