What Is Junior Creative Writers?

At Junior Creative Writers we’ve created a space for kids who love writing. We’re writers, just like you, who live to put words on paper, on a screen, on just about anything. When we were young, we figured out how fun it was to make up stories, keep diaries, and write letters, and we want to help you learn more about writing.

Some of us write for the joy of it, some of us write because it’s our job. We aren’t really too particular about proper grammar, or making things perfect. That’s what your awesome teachers are for. At JCW, we just want to help young writers find a place to be free, to express yourself, and to pick up some fun writing tips along the way.
