I’m a member of a wonderful group called the Columbus Foundation, which supports a number of charitable efforts (large and small) here in Central Ohio. They have been kind enough to provide me with links to two organizations that help foster the talent and interests of young authors.
One is the Thurber House, which is located in Columbus, OH. They are interested in increasing public awareness and support for the Young Writers Studio and the Fable Writing Workshops, which are programs designed to help develop the interests and talents of young authors.
Kenyon College also conducts writing workshops and has a scholarship program to benefit students interested in writing.
Please check out and support these organizations.
