Welcome writers! Discover how reading, writing, and living come together as stories, poems, and beliefs.

The Youth Writing Festival is brought to you by D&W Fresh Market and Family Fare stores. It is a biennial event that brings together young writers from West Michigan who share a passion for reading and writing.

We welcome students from all schools (private schools, public schools, charter schools, and home schools).

A special thank you to all of the teachers, students, and parents who participated in the 2013 Youth Writing Festival. The next Festival will take place in April of 2015. We hope you'll join us!
