Detroit Young Writers Workshop

Detroit Young Writers Workshop Detroit Young Writers Workshop is an annual crowd-funded, self-published book writing project open to all Detroit youth 18 and under. Please support us.

We will find young writers with exemplary work and then we'll work with them every step of the way to help them take their manuscripts all the way to a fully printed, self-published work with it's own ISBN number and Amazon account. The idea is to teach independence and self-sufficiency while helping kids to self-publish their work and experience all the rewards that come with being an author. All proceeds from books sales will go to the author. This project matters because kids deserve to have the resources they need to write and publish their own books, especially in urban areas, and especially in Detroit. The number of children's books available that are by and about African American kids is about 1.3%. Books by and about Latino is about 3.3%. So the disconnect is profound. This is an ongoing project. Our time frame will depend on the pace of our young authors. We won't rush them. We hope to have our first round of books printed by summer 2015. We will keep people informed as to our progress on our page.
