Youth Programs


GWP hosts and promotes opportunities for student writers.  Nothing is more rewarding than giving a young writer the opportunity to be recognized.  

We believe that audience matters.

A key part of the writing process for Writing Project teachers has always been publishing—the exciting moment when writing finds an audience beyond the classroom. In fact, the mere possibility of publishing a piece can strengthen a student's sense of purpose and spark a heretofore hidden passion.  

GWP Youth Writing Programs Include

  • Youth Writing Festivals
  • Drop In & Write Events
  • Ekphrastic Poetry Project
  • Write Outside Your Door Writing Competition
