Feb/March Issue of The Voice!

This month, the Young Writers Project digital magazine, The Voice, features some of the best entries from our annual Writes Day, in which we ask schools to stop what they are doing and write for seven minutes -- just to have fun, give each other feedback and share what they wrote. YWP had over 1,600 posts on that day -- a fraction of the actual writing that went on -- and some of it was inspirational. AS ALWAYS, we encourage you to send any youths you know to sign up on youngwritersproject.org to gain skills in writing in a supportive learning network. Thanks, as always, for supporting our work, by giving these kids audience and sending us your donations.


Thanks for your gifts.



As you know, this 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 are helping an at-risk child participate in our new donation-based formal online learning center, The YWP Academy.

We just finished a highly successful pilot with about 50 youths who tried out our early workshops on YWP Academy. Their feedback led to many small improvements and we soon will begin rolling out monthly workshops for all youths to join. YWP is also beginning partnerships with universities and colleges who will, each month, offer a workshop of their own design. And we plan to have summer workshops specifically for those youths headed college to help them transition into a new type and workload of writing.

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!

In this time of relative chaos, I give thanks to the inspiring, creative and optimistic voices of youth!
