One to One

Introducing our newest virtual offering, One to One, a program that proudly mentors and encourages young writers to explore their voices.

The idea builds on First Draft, our writing feedback program. One to One adds an additional resource...nowinstead of receiving your edits via email, you can choose to chat with your editor via Zoom. And you can reconnect as many times as you like - to talk writing, receive prompts, rework your story, or start an entirely new one. We look forward to mentoring your relationship with the written word!

Recommended for ages 9 - 17
