Community of Young Writers Fostering Global Citizenship and Engagement

Designed by educators at Harvard University, Write the World is dedicated to improving the writing of students aged 13–18 through a global online community, guided interactive process, and monthly competitions. Young writers are empowered to develop their voices, refine their editing skills, and publish on an international platform.

Educators can create an online private classroom writing space with prompts, assignments, and guided peer review tools. They can also start an online writing club using the platform and free resources.

Each month Write the World holds a writing competition that focuses on a particular idea or genre of writing, such as poetry, fantasy, sports journalism, or flash fiction. The competitions encourage students to dig deeper into the writing process, try new genres, and share their work with eager readers. And because a first draft is never perfect, students have the chance to receive peer and expert feedback before submitting their final piece. From Poet Laureates to the President’s speechwriter, renowned and respected writers from across the globe judge the monthly competitions. The winning entrant receives $100, and the runner-up and best reviewer receive $50. Information about current, past, and upcoming competitions is posted online.
