2010 Writing to Ignite
2011 Writing to Ignite
2013 Writing to Ignite coming soon...
One of the purposes of our ministry is to build the self esteem of young people. We feel one avenue for this is through Creative Writing. As a non-profit organization, we show case the talents of students in our annual “Writing to Ignite” publication. There is a preliminary judging, and then notification of student’s work accepted for this annual publication. We at Unique Design Ministries, Inc. realize this venture will take additional time and effort on the teachers as well as the students. However, we believe it will pay back dividends when students see their work published.
