Join our writing festival this fall and Share your Story. Through a partnership with the National Book Festival, we have author videos from Angie Thomas, Trung Le Nguyen, and Tahereh Mafi to help spark inspiration. Writing workshops will be held, and participants will have an opportunity to publish their work to our digital book. Please watch this page for updates, videos, and information on submitting your work.
The National Book Festival takes place Sept. 17-26. Check out their website for live sessions as well as recorded sessions.
We have partnered with local schools to provide writing workshops for students. Check with your school to see if they are hosting workshops for Share Your Story.
