Welcome to WritingIsTheMovement; thanks for reading. This blog was started by me (Doug), an avid reader and writer, writing tutor/mentor, and administrator at http://www.youngwritersproject.org. I am almost constantly surrounded by the writing of young, aspiring minds. This experience is, in turn, inspiring, provocative, hilarious, and heartbreaking. I started this blog with the idea that I would provide some of my personal favorite writing that I come across with another unique platform from which to be displayed, while at the same time posting encouragement and food for thought. I hope that you all enjoy what you read, especially what I borrow from our YoungWriters. (Which will always be displayed with only their public youngwritersproject username to identify the author, unless I’m otherwise permitted) I also manage the YWP Facebook and Twitter (@ywpvt) accounts, if you want to keep up with our organization and enjoy more great literary material. Thank you and Keep Writing!
