The American Writers Museum

The museum is a place where aspiring young people explore the vast spectrum of writers, stories, and perspectives that make have made American writing unique and powerful. They see writers from the past and the present who look like them and faced many of the same challenges. They discover that writing is a path to self-discovery and confidence. They learn that their writing can affect change – for themselves and the world.
