Youth Writing Program & Workshops...Contact us for rates/availability

Higher Ground Books & Media wants to encourage youth to write and create!  With that in mind, HGBM also publishes books written for kids by kids. We will consider manuscripts and artwork submitted by kids ages 8-18.  Parent signature is required on any contracts offered to minors.  Capture a moment in time by allowing your child to create a published work using their God-given imagination and talents!

If you have a child who is always writing stories or drawing pictures, we can help you hold on to the memories and provide you with a keepsake that will not only serve as a way for your child to see progress from project to project; it will also provide them with an opportunity to learn how to write, publish, and market their own work. 

Contact us for more details on our Youth Writing Workshops which include help with age-appropriate plot and character development, editing, how to promote your writing and developing a marketing platform for your work.

Workshops are available for all age groups from grades 2-12 and authors will be able to work toward having a finished product which will be available through Higher Ground Books & Media upon satisfactory completion of the work. 

Mentoring and guidance for young authors is a huge part of this program. Get in touch with us today and set up a Youth Writing Workshop for your school or church! An affordable and fun way to engage your young author and encourage them to tell their story!
