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 2013.

Although the future of the Youth Writing Festival is uncertain, there are no plans in progress for a Youth Writing Festival in the Spring of 2015.
