The Young Writers Initiative was founded to offer young writers valuable writing resources that will aid them in improving their craft and advancing their career, like editing, beta reading, consulting, publishing opportunities, and more. We also want to have a space where young writers can express themselves, empowering young writers and artists all over the world to constantly improve and chase their dreams.
All of our services are free or benefits of volunteering. We are dedicated to making sure every young writer gets the resources they need to improve and succeed. We try our best to give our volunteers and clients all the resources we can, but never compromise on accessibility.
Creativity is a pillar of writing and art. We seek for all our members and young writers to think out of the box and pursue creativity in all they do. Our contests and literary journal prompt you to be creative and explore the parts of us that makes us creative.
Not only do young writers need resources, they need constructive feedback that will improve their writing. Our services are geared towards providing young writers the truth, and giving them the tools to improve.
Volunteers are the foundation of The Young Writers Initiative. Giving back to the community while gaining real skills applicable to the real world is a valuable experience, and one that gives back to the community.
We strive to educate, which is the purpose of our IG LIVE workshops, School Workshops, and upcoming mentorships. We structure our volunteer programs on an educated basis, organizing bootcamps for editing, reviewing, cover design, etc.
