Writing for Peace Vision Statement
In the next five years, Writing for Peace looks toward establishing a successful young writers’ contest, reaching young writers all over the world. We will publish DoveTales, an International Journal of the Arts, available in both hard copy and online in e-book format, featuring established and emerging writers, artists and photographers, as well as the winners of our annual Young Writers Contest. Writing for Peace will establish an annual Rocky Mountain Writing for Peace Workshop that brings together young writers, authors, and peace activists from around the world. Writing for Peace will develop an Advisory Panel of writers and activists to encourage and guide the next generation of young writers. We will feature an Artist-in-Residence whose tenure will coincide with the publishing of our annual journal and whose work will be featured on the cover of our DoveTales, as well as in our blog and outreach. Writing for Peace will become a source for awareness about the multifaceted issues of peace, from the environment, global warming and diminishing resources, to human rights, social and economic equity, and democratic principles. The Writing for Peace blog will provide a platform for our members and guest writers to share works on related topics, as well as a method of communication to keep writers appraised of Writing for Peace news and action items. Fundraising efforts will center on providing awards for young writers, substantial scholarships for young writers to further develop their craft, experience new cultures, publishing, outreach, and our annual summer workshop.
