Your generosity will help fund a one-day writing retreat that will spark participants’ creativity, strengthen their writing skills, and inform them about writing in college and careers.

Since 2017, the Young Authors’ Studio (YAS) program at the ASU Polytechnic campus has supported literacy education through community outreach of various kinds: writing institutes, Sparky Slam competitions, Open Door sessions, online writing workshops, and an online journal. YAS programming has brought together youth, their families, ASU students and professors, professional writers and teaching artists, and other members of the community to celebrate the power of writing.

In Spring 2023, YAS will host its first day-long Writing Retreat at the Polytechnic campus! At this public event, participants of all ages will have the chance to write in a variety of forms, receive feedback on their work, meet fellow writers, and learn tips from experts about writing, publishing, and pursuing careers in writing fields.

Your support will help us plan a successful literacy event for the community. Donations will go toward speaker fees, refreshments, and writing supplies. Prior to the retreat, we will reach out to donors for permission to recognize them in the event program.
