Missoula Writing Collaborative

The Missoula Writing Collaborative teaches literary competence, critical thinking, cultural awareness, and artistic joy through creative writing.

We place writers in school classrooms, after-school programs, youth homes and other venues to show young people the power of words and help them find their voices as writers. We are a nonprofit 501 (c) (3) organization committed to reaching the underserved members of our society.

Each year we teach over 1500 kids to love to write.
