YouthWrite Society Canada
is all about the creative arts and creative writing. YouthWrite celebrates critical and creative thinking and seeks to broaden young participants’ global and environmental awareness, modelling writing as a powerful tool for change.
YouthWrite offers classes that address multiple learning styles and cares about who and where you are - past and present.
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. Our collective of instructors, supervisors, and coordinators work together to bring you the experience you've come to know and love for 25 years!
YouthWrite was conceived and formed in 1996
by coordinator/creator Gail Sidonie Sobat. Our first home was the Bennett Centre, Edmonton, AB. In years to come, YouthWrite expanded to a weekend winter camp, Winter WordPlay and a two-week immersion camp at Kamp Kiwanis, near Bragg Creek, AB.
