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 parent household...  

If your parents are facing long-term unemployment...  

Or anything similar... we would love to let you 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


When will registration re-open?

Registration will re-open in early 2020. You can join our waiting list to be notified when that happens. Click here to join the waiting list. 

What happens after I sign up?

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

Feel free to dive right in!

After you complete orientation, you'll be able access to the private YWW Community site — where we'll have some fun events and challenges planned to help you make friends and learn how to use the program even better.

How do I access all the materials?

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

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

If you sign up for our Academic or Author tracks, you will receive access to extra digital materials and your assigned Teacher's Assistant (Academic) or coach (Author) will reach out to you 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 you love to write, this is most likely a perfect fit.

How will I make time for this?

We know you are busy.

That's why YWW is all about helping you get the best results with your writing in the most efficient way possible.

And by engaging in YWW you'll learn how to better manage your time and set priorities — skills that will serve you well for the rest of your life.

What if we can't afford this?

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