What Sparked the Idea? A Brief Chat with WWD’s Founder

The Writing with Design team is made up of passionate educators and writing coaches just like you. These brief chats with our founder Amber Parks are designed to give you a window into our team and our mission. Whether we’re updating our team tools or talking about the finer points of writing, we’re inviting you to come along and enjoy the journey during these brief interview sessions.

Q: Amber, what originally set the Writing with Design vision into motion? How did you know that you simply had to launch a business dedicated to the support of teaching young writers.

A: Sharing the power of writing with teachers and students is like coming full circle for me. Once upon a time, I was able to go to college completely on scholarships because I knew how to write. In fact, I applied for every scholarship I could find. So now, whether I’m working with pre-K writers or AP English students, there is nothing greater than paying it forward by sharing all the possibilities writing holds.
