Writers Program for Florida Youth Who Love Writing

WELCOME TO THE GO-TO PLACE FOR YOUTH WRITERS

The Florida Writers Association, the most prestigious organization of writers in Florida, welcomes middle and high school students who love writing. Imagine being supported in your passion by authors who are dedicated to helping you? That is the mission of the FWAYouth program. We want to help you because we love writing too.

FWAY = BETTER WRITERS

We offer an on-line critique club where you share your work with your peers and our experts.   Want to be published?  We sponsor contests where you may win awards, or become published. floridayouthwriters.org is your ‘go-to place’ if you have a passion for writing. Visit often to learn about all aspects of our craft. Share what you’re working on too.

OPPORTUNITIES FOR FWAY WRITERS

Watch for new contests on this site.  Be published as a guest blogger by submitting with our contact form.  Whatever genre you love: science fiction, fantasy, mystery, thrillers, poetry, plays, screenplays– we’ve got authors who can help send your work soaring.

CONNECT WITH WRITERS, AGENTS, PUBLISHERS

At our annual Youth Conference, in October, you will enjoy exciting presentations and network with other youth writers, authors, agents, and publishers. As members of the Florida Writers Association, you get access to our resources. You also get two free entries to the annual Collections contest, where you may become a published author, alongside some of the best authors in Florida. You may even get the fantastic experience of signing your Collection story with your fellow winners.

THE ROYAL PALM LITERARY AWARDS FOR YOUTH

This is the contest for Florida writers, and as a member, you get a free first entry to this important competition, the premier contest in Florida for published and unpublished work.  Every entry gets a special bonus, a detailed scoring sheet with comments to help you improve your book, story, or poem. This entry alone is worth your $15 annual membership, but we’re working on even more benefits for our FWAY members. We’re even working on getting you help with college essays.
