StudioSTL Writing & Publishing Center
Write & Shine!http://www.studiostl.org
StudioSTL empowers St. Louis youth to discover, develop, and celebrate their individual voices through writing. Our volunteer writing mentors work one-on-one with youth on writing and publishing projects that build writing skills and appreciation for the power of the written word.
Since 2005, StudioSTL has worked with St. Louis youth, ages 6 to 18, to publish five bound anthologies, seven newspapers, and countless superhero trading cards. We believe that writing is an essential life tool and that skill-building requires personal attention and feedback. Our writing mentors work in small groups with youth through all phases of the writing and thinking process. The result is a young mind trained to think and to appreciate writing in all of its many forms: a well-crafted poem or essay, a thank you note, a job application, or a story about an imaginary river squid!
