Penpowerment – Writing 4 Life

Writing 4 Life is a free creative writing workshop for at-risk youth between the ages of 6-16. The young writers write stories with the help of volunteers. The stories are then collected and a publication will be made and sold with the profits going to the young authors.

Providing a channel for the participants and otherwise ‘voiceless’ to vent their emotions productively. Boosting self-esteem through ownership and by letting their stories be heard.  Check out the website:
