The HWA proudly announces this year’s recipient of the Young Adults Write Now endowment. The Librarian Association of Rockland County Teen Division (Spring Valley, NY), will receive $500 to fund their annual teen writing program (SCRAWL: Rockland Teens Write). “We are pleased to present the 2018 endowment to Rockland County,” said HWA President Lisa Morton. “Public libraries’ expansion of genre-fiction programs is an exciting development in HWA’s commitment to the field.”
Young Adults Write Now is part of the HWA’s continuing commitment to furthering young adult literacy, and it is open to all school and public libraries. Each year, the HWA provides up to five endowments of $500 each for selected libraries to establish or continue genre-focused writing programs for teens. Membership in the HWA is not a requirement.
Applications for 2019 will open June 1, 2019 and run until December 31. The Young Adults Write Now program will again provide up to five endowments of $500 each per year for selected libraries to establish new or support ongoing genre-focused writing programs. The program is currently open to United States libraries, but it will be expanded in the future to include other countries, as part of the HWA’s global presence.
