“Writing for the Soul Workshop for Youth is giving young authors in Joplin, surrounding communities and across the world the opportunity to express themselves creatively and to tell their stories to others.

I had the opportunity to meet some of these fine young authors at a book signing a little while back, and was very impressed. Upon reading the stories collected in their book, “Pieces of Me,” I was moved. These authors poured out their emotions, and the result is nothing less than inspiring.” -Benji Tunnell, Joplin Globe
