Our Story So Far

Early Concept

Inspire. Create. Write.

Tour The Write Place

Building Community

Help us continue to build

Build literacy

The goal is to combine a love of writing with curriculum developed by local educators. Proficiency at basic levels is a challenge for many in San Joaquin County.

Serve community

Writers should have a place to develop where work isn’t graded and no one fails. Our goal is to help community members use language to share their stories.

Unlock creativity

Writers seek to think, rethink, revisit and revise. The reward is pride in creating work that transcends time – and builds our history.

Value Writing

Teach the value and practice of the art of writing to instill the love of words.
