“I’ve been inspired to be a part of Underground Writing or a similar group/organization when I get out. This program changes lives. I am a prime example. I now have something to work towards, to strive for. I have something I want on the outs.”
—Josh, Skagit Co. Juvenile Detention site
“I’m not scared to say what I think anymore.”
—Selena, Migrant Leaders Club site
“I’ve been inside for four to five months now and have been distracting myself pretty well. This writing class is the first time I’ve engaged with the real issues I’m facing.”
—T., Skagit Co. Community Justice Center site
We offer over a hundred free creative writing workshops, as well as
unique collaborative opportunities, in at-risk community settings
each year. Help us continue to freely give our students the gift
of writing—as an art form and a tool for life.
All proceeds go back into the Underground Writing program fund.
Your support fuels our ongoing mission to amplify student voices
via The Underground Writing Podcast, KITE, and the publication
of student writing anthologies, as well as helping us save toward
a physical building space and our vision for an alumni network.
As of November 16, 2018, we are a 501(c)3 nonprofit arts organization.
Our EIN# is 83-2570377.
