It’s a simple mission with profound affect on the lives of our young writers:
Through education and creative writing, Writing for Peace seeks to cultivate the empathy that allows minds to open to new cultural views, to value the differences as well as the hopes and dreams that unite all of humanity, to develop a spirit of leadership and peaceful activism.
In their words:
“Since writing my entry for Writing for Peace, I’ve come to realize that my work really can make a difference in the world. Words have the power to spread awareness, hope, and inspiration to people who would have otherwise despaired. We all have the ability to create, and create in the name of beauty and change. I can only hope one day to spend my life doing just that.”
Jordan Dalton, Carmel, Indiana, Age 16
“Since Writing for Peace, I have become bolder in terms of sharing my work and putting myself out there. My writing has appeared in The Hindu, a leading Indian daily, and Voices of the World, a Projects Abroad initiative. I was also shortlisted as one of forty finalists out of over seven hundred young hopefuls around the world in the Laura Thomas Communications Short Story Competition, 2013 and have recently been shortlisted as a finalist in the Laura Thomas Communications Poetry Writing Contest 2014, my first foray into writing serious poetry. I have also dabbled in non-fiction writing over the course of the past year, and just last month I placed first in an essay writing competition.”
