Missoula Writing Collaborative

Helping children learn to love writing, the Collaborative trains and employs professional poets and prose writers to teach creative writing, reading, and speaking skills to children and youth ages 8-18 in school classrooms. Serves Missoula and surrounding communities, and Helena. A two-week summer writing camp, Words With Wings, is held annually on the University of Montana campus, and evening workshops are taught weekly at Talbot Youth Homes.
