Welcome, Artists!

Empower youth writers

As a working artist, you know the twists and turns of creative development. Your gifts of experience, encouragement and support help youth tap into the power of their authentic voices. Our Collaborating Artist program is designed to make it easy for you to give back in small ways, in the midst your productive, creative life.

Who are our Collaborating Artists?

  • professional writers
  • illustrators
  • storytellers of various mediums

Our Collaborating Artists are committed to lifelong learning, the pursuit of excellence in our art forms, and the development of creativity through play. Here is a list of some of our collaborators.

We have two goals for the Collaborating Artists Program:

  1. To provide simple, impact-filled ways for you to connect with and support youth writers.
  2. Through the power of community, to build awareness of YOU and the meaningful impact you bring to the world through your words, images, and appearances.

What does the Collaborating Artists Program look like in action?

We’ve designed the Collaborating Artists Program to be flexible enough to fit into the lives of working pros. You can contribute and make a difference in many ways, from simply keeping SYI on the tip of your tongue to writing a guest blog post to mentoring and anything in between.

We aren’t Collaborating Artists only in name! This program provides a space where¬†you can¬†inspire and share your talents with young writers, connect with other working artists, and celebrate your good news with a wider audience.
