Young Writers Face Low Expectations

They're discouraged from pursuing writing seriously.

They're afraid their writing isn't good enough.

They aren't able to find the help they need.

We believe your writing can be so much more than you expect.

We understand the unique challenges young writers face and have seen what they can accomplish when they truly believe God can use their words to impact others.

Young Writers Can Make An Impact!

Just ask Katherine Forster, who published her first book, Transformed by Truth, at the age of 19.

Or Annika Crum, who went to Carnegie Hall to receive a National Silver Medal with Distinction from the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards -- placing her in the top 1% of 100,000 competitors!

Or ask Anna Rose Johnson, who published her first novel last year, The Star That Always Stays, which was named one of NPR's Best Books of 2022!

What could YOU accomplish someday with faith and hard work?

Your Summit Host

My name is Brett Harris. I got published at 19-years-old with the message that teens can make an impact when they rebel against low expectations and do hard things.

Over the past decade, I've been helping young writers put that "do hard things" message into action by achieving levels of excellence beyond what most people expect.

Now, I'm bringing these incredible authors together to motivate and inspire you to write more, write better, and believe that God can use your words for His glory.

Don't miss out on this one-of-a-kind event!

You don't have to wait till you're retired to write a book… and you certainly don't have to wait till you're an adult to make a difference.


Your words can inspire others, entertain readers, and glorify God right now.

All you need is the right mindset & direction so you can begin producing stories, articles, or books you're proud of showing off to the world.

Are you ready to commit?
