Mission and Vision


Whatcom Young Writers seeks to develop the writing abilities of young people ages 8 to 18 and create opportunities to celebrate and share their words and stories with the greater community.


Whatcom Young Writers supports and encourages young writers in elementary through high school as they explore their personal points of view and and grow through self-expression in both creative and expository writing. We believe that everyone holds a stake in the education of our youth, and so we connect community volunteers from all careers and backgrounds with young people in a variety of one-on-one and group settings.
