Young Writers

Participating in the Writing for Peace Young Writers Contest takes a commitment to research, an open mind, and refining the craft of writing. Entries from across the globe exemplified this commitment, and many of our young writers are working in a second language. Many thanks to the teachers and mentors who encouraged, inspired, and guided them to prepare their best work. This year we are excited to welcome writers from the Philippines, Morocco, and Japan, joining other forward thinking future leaders from a total of 27 countries. We’re so happy to share their work with you now!
