Who We Are

YouthWrite is an inclusive, multi-disciplinary writing camp that offers young writers the chance to work with superbly talented instructors from many facets of the performing, visual, musical, dance, film, and written arts. The organization is a collective of past instructors, supervisors, and coordinator working together to bring you the experience you've come to know and love for 22 years!  

YouthWrite Society Canada is all about the creative arts and creative writing and celebrates critical and creative thinking that seeks to broaden young participants’ global and environmental awareness, modelling writing as a powerful tool for activism.


YouthWrite offers classes that address multiple learning styles and cares about who and where you are - past and present participants - WE want to stay in touch with YOU and celebrate your growth and achievements.

We hope to offer an online Blue Pencil Café for participants to work one-on-one with instructors après YouthWrite.

We invite participants, instructors, supers, and alumni to stay connected and involved - STAY in touch! Let us know about your writing and career achievements!

YouthWrite hopes to cross borders and oceans with opportunities to take the YouthWrite experience overseas.
