A Network of Youth Writers

Write4Change is a collaborative authoring community of youth writers (13+) supported by a team of adult and youth moderators and researchers connected to the University of Pennsylvania’s Graduate School of Education.

This is a network of young people from around the world who want to write for and with others to create change – whether personally, locally, or globally. Writers in Write4Change (W4C) collaborate in a safe, moderated community, expanding the boundaries of what ‘counts’ as writing by intermingling visual, audio, text, and other forms of composing across languages and spaces.
