Thanks again to all of you who've made donations to Young Writers Project. Your donations add up and are hugely important to help us continue our work.
As you see from the image, we have just launched a new site. This was an enormous project that I largely did myself. I had 40+ kids helping me along the way -- as users not coders -- and their critique, suggestions and ideas were enormously helpful. But, in the end, I had to hire a few folks to help me with some leading edge ideas I had. As with any Web project, we went over budget. Things are always more complicated than you think.
So we appeal to your generosity again to help us fill in this budget shortfall of $5,000. CAN YOU HELP? If so, please click the Donate button to your left.
ALSO: If you know youths who like to write or take pictures or play music, please, please send them our way. Our site, youngwritersproject.org is open to any youths from anywhere. Please send them the link!
Thanks, too, to all of you who enjoy and use this site; thanks to "bloggers" who've been posting stories about their lives as knitters, spinners and weavers. Please contact Janet or me if you are interested in becoming one of the voices of this site. NO GUILT required! Do it when you can.
I hope that the site is working well for you.
