Why Us?

JustWrite is built on both an educational and business background.  Between us, the Executive Director and Board have been involved in education and private business.  We know what it takes to run a successful writing program, understand the needs of the market, and have a strong plan for the future.  We understand that students and teachers need to be the primary focus and want students be recognized for the literary talents they possess, all while improving literacy.
