Welcome to The Writer's Journal!
This is the place to come to publish your writing, get inspired, and let your voice be heard. So get the word out, and let's get creative!
"If you find yourself asking yourself (and your friends) 'Am I really a writer? Am I really an artist?' chances are, you are. The counterfeit innovator is wildly self-confident. The real one is scared to death." These are the words of Steven Pressfield in 'The War of Art. You are a writer. You are an artist. No matter how scared you are, you are the innovator, the voice of a generation. So use your gifts - your passions - and share them with the world.

Edit and revise your work. I am busy and don't have time to edit all of your writing before posting it. I will always look it over just in case, but please try to make sure that your writing is as grammatically correct as possible.
Welcome! My name is Danielle, and I created this website a when I was in fifth grade. The Writer's Journal is a website that is dedicated to writing - it is a safe place where you can share and publish your work. On this website, it's all about having your voice heard.
The Writer's Journal's goal is to create a place where people can improve their writing, have their voice heard, and learn about the power of words. We publish any writing; your skill, experience, and content don't matter to us! We also publish any age; are you in kindergarten sharing your first poem? Or are you an adult, just looking for a place to share your writing? Everything gets published. Here, it's all about you getting a chance to share your writing, without being limited by your experience.
