YWP Site Updates

Launch Date News: Our launch of the new site is now scheduled for Aug. 17! The site will be down for a bit before and after the launch, but we'll give you more details as the day approaches. Thanks for your patience as we work on this major project for YWP!

We're excited that the new site will make YWP even more welcoming and accessible to young writers and artists. Over the past year, and intensively this summer, we have been redesigning and updating the site with a new Drupal platform and improved accessibility. Thanks to our web partners at Tamarack Media Cooperative for all their creative and expert tech work on the site! Tamarack also designed the new YWP logo featuring the "Corvid" (the raven and crow family), reflecting YWP’s creativity and playfulness. 

YWP COMMUNITY NOTES:
  • Active users: Active YWP account holders will be transferred to the new site with your current username. You'll just need to reset your password. 
  • Past content: Tamarack is working with us to migrate current users' past content over to the new site. 
  • Archived site (2015-2023): Content from the old site (this site, which started in 2015) will be archived. We're working on an easy way to access.
  • ​If you would like to help test the new site once it's launched, contact Susan Reid, YWP Executive Director, by message on the site at Reid@YWP or by email: [email protected].


YWP is committed to providing the most accessible website possible so that anyone who wants to join us will feel welcome and comfortable. We are working with Tamarack to rebuild our site so it is barrier-free and compliant with WCAG – website content accessibility guidelines. This project has been made possible through a digital capacity grant from Vermont Arts Council. Thank you!
