Each year, Young Writers Project (YWP) creates original, weekly writing challenges and invites Vermont teens 13-19 (and younger with parental permission) to respond to the prompts in school and after school on the YWP website, youngwritersproject.org. The best of the students’ writing and visual art is then published in partnership with newspapers across Vermont, on VTDigger.org, in YWP’s monthly digital magazine, The Voice, and annual Anthology. Along with the writing challenges, YWP has a vibrant online community of youth who create their own podcasts, open mic nights, a book club and more. They also participate in monthly writing workshops and other projects and events that revolve around the YWP site.
YWP, which started in Burlington, VT in 2006, is an independent nonprofit with a mission to inspire, mentor, publish and promote young writers and artists. Please encourage the young writers and artists in your communities to sign up for a free account and join the YWP community.
