Show - Don’t Tell
A New Way To Learn - Coming Spring 2021


In honor of 2021, and the hopeful rebirth it will bring with it, Resources is rolling out a new way to learn about the Young Writers Society and writing educational topics from different perspectives.

The first segment of the series will cover the Basics of YWS, including everything you need to know about the Poetry Section as National Poetry Month approaches.

It will soon be followed by an overview of our different literary sections, with a heavy focus on the Books and Shorts Section with the two annual Camp NaNo (a compact version of National Novel Writing Month) sessions being right around the corner.

And then we will address your burning questions regarding how to have fun in the Storybook Sanctuary and Roleplay Realm .

Videos regarding Resources and the other forums housed within YWS will be in ongoing distribution as we find out what the people of YWS want to learn about. This means we need you! To help us to show - not tell - young writers how to become active members of YWS and how to make their writing dreams come true.
