MW West launched in 2013 in what had been a storefront church on the corner of 39th and Lancaster in West Philadelphia and in 2019 relocated to a space in the heart of the Mantua neighborhood. In 2014, the neighborhood was designated a Promise Zone by President Obama, a program designed to boost assets and strengths in high poverty areas. Mighty Writers West was a hit with neighborhood kids right from the start. Our daily writing Academy and workshops like Crafty Readers, Cursive Writing and Teen Scholars have had waiting lists for years. More recently, our Mighty Toddlers program has attracted a large number of families with two- to four-year-olds in our neighborhood.

We're now online!

Mighty Writers programs are designed to teach children
to think clearly and write with clarity.

All programs at Mighty Writers are free to the kids we serve.
