WritersCorps places professional writers in community settings to teach creative writing to youth.
Since its inception in 1994, the program has helped thousands of young people from neighborhoods throughout San Francisco improve their literacy and increase their desire to learn.
WritersCorps publishes award-winning publications and produces local and national events featuring young people. It is a joint project of the San Francisco Arts Commission and San Francisco Public Library and part of a national alliance with sites in the Bronx and Washington, D.C.
