Any writer between the ages of 13 & 25 is welcome to join us.
Nope! You can go through our trainings and work on your story idea whenever you like each day of the challenge.
Most students will need 30-45 minutes each day to complete all the activities, but students can join even if they can't do everything.
Prizes are earned across the community as a whole. The more everyone works on their stories, the more prizes everyone gets at the end of the week!
You could earn a special training with your instructors or even force us to create a wacky Veggie Tales parody video for you!
