Yeah Write!: The Origin Story
Originally called Girls' Voices, Yeah Write! was founded in 2011 as a safe space for girls to find, develop, and share their writing voices. Over the years, the organization has expanded that space to include writers of all ages and genders. Mindfulness and intentionality are two key tenets that make Yeah Write! different from other writing programs.
Allyson Jacob is the founder and lead instructor for Yeah Write! She draws on her experience as a professional writer, editor, playwright, and English teacher to coach young writers in developing their writing voices, their self-confidence in sharing their work with others, and their ability to become deep listeners.
