KWA Jr is a free youth writing group for ages 8 to 16 where young people who are passionate about telling stories and interested in building their creative skills can do just that. We believe creativity is a gift given by the best creator--ours! At our meetings, members can fellowship with other young Christian creatives and learn from professional writers who use their gifts to further God's kingdom.


We have an exciting offer for KWA jr members. We want to see YOUR stories. So, we will be selecting one of your short stories each month to be published in the monthly KWA newsletter! (Everyone will have a chance, and this is NOT a competition.) If you are interested in sharing your gifts and learning about the publishing process, click the button below.

Meet the Leaders



Rhonda is a mom, dream influencer and writer. She has a passion for writing, directing and producing screenplays and short films. Her purpose is to ignite dreams and provoke purpose. She enjoys helping others realize the intensely rich life God intended for them and challenge them to live it!




Michele is a contracted author of Young Adult fantasy novels, Christian lifestyle blogger, freelance editor, and creativity coach. Her passion and purpose are in encouraging others to discover and become all God created them to be as they recognize God’s power to overcome all obstacles. While not inventing new worlds or chatting with other writers, she spends her time chasing after her two sons and watching Netflix with her board-game designing husband.
