Thanks. And Happy New Year!


The family,

Thanks to all of you who gave to YWP during its end-of-year fundraiser. We received a $500 donation from one of you -- bowled us over for sure -- as well as a $3 check from someone we know -- or at least surmise -- who doesn't have a lot of money to spare. Thank you.

Young Writers Project (YWP) helps thousands of young people from around the U.S. and world gain the confidence and skills to express themselves with clarity, power and respect. We do important work and hope that you will continue to support us in 2018. As you know, YWP manages this site for you -- for free -- and your donations are, additionally, a way of thanking YWP for its devotion to all things fiberous!

So Happy New Year. And enjoy this wonderful photograph from "lovetowrite" one of the community leaders on
