Write Local will partner with your school in two main ways.

Contact us to discuss how Write Local can collaborate with you.

We send trained volunteers to support your projects.

First, we can dispatch a trained volunteer to support teachers with their own projects. Whether your students are drafting haikus, mastering commas, researching for term papers, or storyboarding for videos, Write Local tutors can aid you in your classroom to dramatically lower the student-to-teacher ratio. We’ve seen our friends at 826Valencia, a west coast nonprofit we admire, do this, and we think the service will greatly benefit Westmoreland County students and teachers.

If you are a teacher and your students could use additional assistance with a project, please don’t hesitate to contact Krista Sarraf. Let us know where you teach, tell us a little bit about the project, and let us know when you need help. We’ll send an enthusiastic, professional tutor to your school.

We bring workshops to your classroom.

Our second service offers you and your students a change of pace. Bring a fun, exciting Write Local event to your classroom and inspire your students to become published authors. Workshop topics vary and can be tailored to your needs, and each workshop culminates in your students publishing their work with us. They’ll be talking about their in-school workshop at the dinner table for years, and they’ll love showing off their published work to friends and family. Who knows? Maybe it’s just what your students need to reignite their love of the writing process.

If you are interested in bringing a Write Local workshop to your classroom, please contact Krista Sarraf at with your desired date(s) and time(s) and a statement of the grade(s) you teach.
