Welcome to our YouthWrite website! We're excited to have you join us. Spend some time perusing our pages. Tell us what you think - what you like - what you'd like to see! Your comments are appreciated. Whether you're a newcomer, a past-participant, an alumna/alumnus, a teacher, a librarian, a parent, we're delighted to have you visit!
The YouthWrite Society Canada, a non-profit and charitable arts organization, is a group of passionate and committed instructors and supervisors from the past seventeen years of our existence who have formed a collective to ensure that our camp and our vision carry on in perpetuity! We want young writers to have the experience that is YouthWrite for years to come. We want to maintain that calibre of instruction and fun that have been the trademark of YouthWrite. We want YouthWriters everywhere to stay connected and to visit our site often - to see their words and artwork in print, to get new updates, to check out young writers' market information, to register early for our camps, to make course selections online, and to seek out professional and online help from YouthWrite Society members. We want YouthWrite alumni to stay in touch and involved so that we may archive and document who you are and who you've become.
