You Can Help

You can help the D.C. Creative Writing Workshop further its mission of transforming the lives of at-risk youth through the joy of self-expression and the power of the written word!

Thanks to the generosity of people like you, the D.C. Creative Writing Workshop was able to expand its programs to Simon Elementary and Ballou High Schools. And with your help, we can continue to offer our award-winning programs to at-risk children throughout their school careers.

According to the National Education Association, students who participate in the arts outperform those who don’t on virtually every measure. In fact, students who study the arts score, on average, 40 to 60 points higher on the verbal portion of the SAT and 15 to 40 points higher on the math portion. But students in the struggling Congress Heights neighborhood have little access to the arts. In fact, the D.C. Creative Writing Workshop offers the only intensive literary and dramatic arts programs in the area. Please help us continue to give these children what every child deserves: an education that prepares them not just to survive, but to flourish.
