Once upon a time three friends who liked to write discovered that their facilitator wrote a book. Hannah shyly shared a story idea and then a poem with her. Chandler shared the beginning of a fan fiction book. (He’s a big Rick Riordan fan–met the author at an event.) And Amber edited and re-edited the first chapters of her book to show the facilitator. These teens inspired the author to start a writers group for students, and the Young Writers of Christ was born. It was their idea to put together a book to raise money for a clean water charity. They are brilliant and an inspiration every day. I am constantly amazed by their creativity and heart.
Thus, Y IS FOR Young Writers. I salute you.
