The Writers Promise  program gives children firsthand experience with writing for an authentic purpose. Volunteers correspond to children by post, sharing thoughts and experiences via handwritten letters, stories and poems. Topics range from favorite books and authors to long term aspirations. The process of writing develops children's imagination and enhances reading and communication skills; illustrating letters promotes creativity. Imagination, creativity, and communication are the skills that help children achieve.

The Young Authors Program inspires children to become published authors. Under the direction of a Certified Writing Instructor, children conceive, design, write and illustrate  autobiographies, poems, and fictional stories. Each child’s story is professionally published in a hard cover book, complete with photos and a personal biography of the child-author. Finished books are legendary keepsakes children and families may treasure for a lifetime.

The program helps children gain meaningful, firsthand experience with the writing process, from conception to publication. Children learn the value of books and the importance of their own stories while enhancing 

reading and writing proficiency, self-confidence, and communication skills.


Volunteers assist children with all stages of the writing process, from brainstorming to editing, to illustrating the cover art for their books. If you have a passion for creative writing, illustrating or publishing, please join us in this worthwhile endeavor!
