Not every kid has someone

in their corner.

Story Makers is so much more than just writing.

Thousands of kids in our community struggle to experience success; to cultivate their creativity; or even to find a sense of community and belonging. In order to gain confidence and feel inspired, children and teens need support, guidance and encouragement from both a mentor as well as their peers.


At Story Makers, we aim to bring people together to experience not only the unique power of writing and story, but also the positive impact of mentorship and a strong sense of community. Let's help kids be successful at writing while encouraging them to foster meaningful relationships.
