  • Sell their skills (e.g. by creating a blog, email list, or website)
  • Engage others to support their craft and share their vision
  • Give and receive criticism humbly
  • Understand the business and career side of writing
  • Gain the confidence and motivation to stick with things
  • Become more discerning as they learn to evaluate the written word

"This has been an INCREDIBLE experience for Kiki. She has matured so much in her writing."

KIKI'S MOM Melissa Stanton 


"We've not only watched our daughter's writing ability excel, but her love for writing grows stronger every day." 

BETHANY'S PARENTS John & Lisa Melton


"The results of our children being part of YWW has far exceeded our expectations." 

SAMUEL'S MOM Kirsten

What Does YWW Cost?

We decided from the beginning to offer this program with a "Pay-What-You-Can" policy.  

That means that we won't turn anyone away for lack of funds.  

If your family is dealing with unexpected medical bills...  

If you are missionaries living on support...  

If you are a single mom or dad...  

If you are facing long-term unemployment...  

Or anything similar... we would love to let your child participate for a reduced rate, or even for free.  

That said, if your family can afford the regular price, we still need to make a living too!  

YWW is less expensive than music lessons, ballet classes, sports, or almost any other serious extracurricular activity — especially since it doesn't require any equipment or travel.

And it is MUCH less expensive than other writing programs. 

The standard program is only $30/month if you pay annually.  

And you can go month-to-month for only $37.  

There's no long-term contract and you can cancel anytime with a few clicks.  

(You don't have to call us or jump through any hoops to end your membership).

Frequently Asked Questions


What is the deadline?

Registration is closing on Sunday, August 18th, at 11:59pm Pacific.  

We close registration so we can focus on serving our students rather than on marketing the program.

And just like a college class, everyone joins together and starts together.  

What happens after we sign up?

After purchasing YWW, you’ll be sent login details via email. Simply log in to the site to access your child's orientation and content.

Feel free to dive right in!

Then, after they complete orientation, we'll give your child access to the private YWW Community site — and we'll have some fun events and challenges planned to help them make friends and learn how to use the program.

How do we access all the materials?

All YWW content is digital, delivered through a private membership site.

When your child logs in to the site, they’ll be able to watch lessons, listen to interviews with authors, and keep track of their progress through the content.

If you sign them up for our Academic or Author tracks, they will receive access to extra digital materials and their assigned Teacher's Assistant (Academic) or coach (Author) will reach out to them directly via email. 

Nothing will be mailed to you, which means you get instant access to everything.

What age is YWW best for? 

Our members range in age from 12 to 25 — with the majority being teenagers.

Everything about the program is designed to be age appropriate for our youngest members, while also providing private spaces for older writers to discuss heavier topics and themes in their writing.

If your child loves to write, this is most likely a perfect fit.

Does this program work for homeschooling?

Yes! In fact, we have an entire track designed for homeschool families who want to incorporate YWW into their schooling. 

YWW Academic is designed and run by a high school English Teacher and provides a certificate of completion and 1 high school credit in Creative Writing for homeschooled students.

What if we can't afford this?

If you honestly can't afford this program... we won't turn you away.

Check out our "Pay-What-You-Can" policy for more details.
