I have always had a great time there. I love expressing my feelings in what I write there. It gives me time to think about what excting things happen in my life and I want to share with others. So much happens that I dont want to forget so I write it down.

Our organization meets on Saturday mornings to help families develop and improve their writing and to also develop a love for writing, while enjoying it. We have served over four hundred families in our ten years of existence. each year we've published an anthology of participants' work. We have been supported by Ethel Sergeant clark Smith Foundation, the Connolly Foundation, the Douty Foundation, PECO Energy, Citizens Bank, the pennsylvania Writing and Literature Project and Media Fellowship House.
