Cards - Written Out Loud (2)-1-1
Pioneered at Yale | Developed in Hollywood

Written Out Loud’s three core principles are transforming how kids learn - and love - to write.


Writers Write Words.
Storytellers Right The World.  

It's no mystery that kids are struggling more than ever with their mental health. As a result of the pandemic, learning loss is at an all time high. Kids have suffered from being isolated and stuck in toxic environments that are making them technology dependent - even hopeless.  Equitable and engaging solutions are needed to help kids reconnect. Team-based Storytelling gives the individual a voice while simultaneously providing a supportive community.

Hear how kids, parents, and educators have been transformed by Written Out Loud.




"Sometimes when you write stories, you have to write about a specific topic that other people tell you to do. At Written Out Loud you can write about whatever you want to. And the best thing is that other people’s ideas–you can combine your idea with to make it an even better idea."


Heather White


"At Written Out Loud, my daughter has found groups where they pull the best out of each other. Each time I listen to my daughter's classes I find myself wanting to either go back to being 12 so I could be part of the WOL class, or I wish I could grow up again to be the Story Director. Every minute she has spent in these classes has been magical."


Duane Smith


"The fact that students, through Written Out Loud, become published authors and begin to see themselves as experts, creators, storytellers - there is nothing better. To have that joy is something that is just irreplaceable."
