Write Our World is a new nonprofit that is addressing culture and language revitalization through facilitation of bilingual ebook authoring with youth. We are building an online library to be used as an educational resource by all. We would love to pick your brains to better develop something that is of value to all. Come for a sneak preview of ebooks authored by Mayan youth in Guatemala (2 language communities represented), Brazilian teens from a small coastal town, and the personal refugee story of a young aspiring artist from Congo.
