The Young Eager Writers Association, founded by Desiree Brown, is an organization motivated to guide young writers with establishing strong beginnings in their writing careers. Because of the yew tree's long life expectancy, it is used as our symbol to represent our goal to create long-sustaining writing futures. As the YEW Association manages the annual YEW Conference, YEW podcasts and videos, and local YEW Clubs, we hope to keep inspiring eager writers in following their paths to success.

Mission Statement:

Our mission is to help young writers build sustainable careers as storytellers through our network of clubs, our library content, our annual conference, and our insightful podcasts and videos.
