Why local?

I get the writing part, but why local?

If you’re from a small town in Western Pennsylvania, you already understand that our towns must redefine their economic identities to respond to major changes in regional industry. Our economic and cultural future depends on our ability to innovate. How can we empower future leaders to engage with our community? How can we prevent “brain drain?”

At Write Local, we help you to be more creative, because we understand that creativity is essential for innovation. See some of the research on the link between creativity and entrepreneurship.

We provide you with the tools necessary for innovative thinking so you can invest in your town. Everything we do at Write Local – creative thinking events, publishing, contests – seeks to empower individuals to change the world, starting with their own backyards.
