Rating: 5 stars  

I happened upon Mighty Writers by accident, at it's inception. My daughter has been a part of many programs: classes, after school, and writing for the Mighty Times. The program is overwhelmingly positive; I have never seen anything negative. She continues to work with a writing mentor. The mentor, along with the other programs she has been involved with have not only improved her writing skills, which is critical to her schooling, but it has also increased her confidence and self esteem, which are critical to her entire life.
