THE YWP ACADEMY -- You Can Help

 

As you know, the kbbspin.org site is managed by Young Writers Project, a passionate, small band of people that helps thousands of youths around the U.S. and world become better writers so they can succeed in school, college and beyond. Writing is a vital skill and we believe more needs to be done to help kids become proficient.

By continuing to provide us financial support you help pay for our time -- and the time of leading experts and artists -- to provide youths guidance and encouragement on youngwritersproject.org or leading a workshop.

UPDATE: Your donations have helped us get started on creating formal learning workshops for kids, housed in The YWP Academy. We've had great success so far, including storytelling, audio stories, staged plays, poetry and foundational work in writing. THESE WORKSHOPS ARE NOW FREE!

And don't forget: The rest of our fonline respectful teen writing community is  also free and 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!

I give thanks to the inspiring, creative and optimistic voices of youth! And to all of your generosity.

Happy knitting and weaving and hooking!

Guidelines and Ad Tips

Guidelines

This site offers free advertisements for anyone wanting to sell -- or find -- wool-related items from spinning wheels to fibers, from carders to books, from looms to animals. Those posting the ads are individuals or very small businesses. The site is run by volunteers so please be patient and kind. PLEASE remove your ad when you have sold your item, thanks! In exchange for these kindnesses, we encourage you to donate to our preferred charity, Young Writers Project, which is doing amazing things with young people. Thank you!

OUR AD GUIDELINES:

  • You must be an individual or a small seller,
  • You are responsible for being honest and forthright in what you are selling,
  • It is your responsibility to ensure safe delivery of products you are selling and sharing,
  • We are not responsible for any misrepresentations but ask that if you have a problem, alert us, WITH the link to the offending advertisement/community member,
  • If anyone violates our basic honesty code, we will make sure the ad is unpublished and the user is blocked and contacted.
  • PLEASE DELETE YOUR AD WHEN IT HAS BEEN TAKEN CARE OF! Do this as a favor to the community: nothing can be more frustrating to someone than to find an ad, follow up and find out that it is long gone. So when you sell, please come back and DELETE the ad. THANK  YOU!
