StoryCorps Partnership

The Atlanta Young Writers Institute is thrilled to partner with StoryCorps, a brilliant nonprofit whose mission is to record and share the stories, thoughts, and experiences of people all over the country. AYWI staff, instructors, and student members are sharing their work and conversing with each other about storytelling, the power of words, and what it is to be a writer–you know, the stuff that really matters.

Please take the time to listen to excerpts from these thought-provoking, honest, and engaging conversations.
