|About||The Greater Seattle Bureau of Fearless Ideas is a nonprofit creative writing and storytelling center for students ages 6–18.|
The Greater Seattle Bureau of Fearless Ideas is a corps of youth and adults, staff and volunteers, families and local citizens who believe that the power of words, well-written and well-spoken, can open doors to important opportunities.
Our tutoring, writing, and publishing programs prepare young people, ages 6 to 18, for a successful future by developing strong writing skills, championing diverse communication styles, and motivating young people to share their stories. Programs at each Fearless Ideas center reach into the surrounding neighborhood to involve adults and businesses in helping youth become engaged citizens and confident leaders. All programs are free and open to families from any socio-economic background.
|Description||The Bureau of Fearless Ideas is a writing and tutoring center for Seattle-based humans ages 6-18. Our award-winning programs range from afterschool tutoring (in all subjects!) to a vast array of writing workshops, including publishing projects with local schools, a Songwriting Club led by real-life rock stars, and our monthly All-City Comics Club. Now more than ever, we believe in the power of stories and the importance of being able to share them. Each year, we help thousands of young people from different backgrounds learn the art and craft of writing within a collaborative environment that encourages them to think and write boldly. Basically, we're a creative community for creative humans too young to meet up in cafes and bars. (And all of our programs are free free FREE.)|
