About 1st Writes

"1st Writes - Teen Edition" provides encouragement 
for aspiring teen writers

Who? Any teen who has a passion for writing can join us!

What? We write about anything, often writing from writing prompts.

Where? We meet once a week in person, but those on-line can join in by writing from the prompts or by emailing me what they'd like published (as long as it is rated G). dramadawn (at) embarqmail (dot) com

When? Write as often as you can.

Why? If you feel passionate about writing, it's probably because God has given you talent in that area. He wants you to learn and grow. So, write and then share your writing with others! Use your writing to inspire and encourage, building up the Kingdom of God.

Words to Inspire You:

Don't hide your light under a basket! Instead, put it on a stand and let it shine for all.
-- Matthew 5:15

Write honestly from your heart, sharing truth and light. 

While waiting for the Lord, write. Be strong and take heart, and keep writing for the Lord. 

My heart overflows with a captivating theme, for my voice is the pen of a skillful writer.

If God is our helper when we write, the stories we build cannot be in vain.
