Our Blog is written and run by CCYW’s Youth Advisory Board Members, aka young writers – just like you! Consider this your after school hangout. Pull up a bean bag chair, a low fat decaf frappuccino and your list of writing questions. Get your creative inspiration and writing advice here.
Keep coming back for new opportunities, interviews, contest updates, book reviews, real-world stories from young writers and the latest news in writing classes, conferences and more!
We do our best to stick to a schedule so that you know what to expect on a particular day. Here’s what you can “generally” expect:
Book Reviews – posted on Tuesday and/or Thursday
CCYW Member & Board Articles – posted on Monday
Author Interviews & Guest Posts – posted on Wednesday
Events, Happenings & Opportunities – posted on Friday
*Capitol City Young Writers is a national 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to educating and mentoring young writers (and avid readers) up to and including high school. Our goal is to educate today’s youth on the art and craft of writing, so as to encourage their own love of writing. Students are exposed to fiction, nonfiction, poetry, memoir, screenplay, broadcast radio, songwriting, and many other forms of creative writing.
All of our board members are volunteers and generously donate their time and energy to our cause. We hold two fundraiser events each year and rely very much on donations. If you would like to support CCYW in any way, please contact Verna Dreisbach at firstname.lastname@example.org. Since we are a non-profit organization, your donations are tax deductible.
