Our brother organization, Underground Writing, is a literature-based creative writing program serving migrant, incarcerated, recovery, and other at-risk communities in Northern Washington through literary engagement and personal restoration.

Underground Writing facilitates a generative encounter with literature spanning the tradition—from ancient texts to those written in our workshop sessions.  Honoring the transforming power of the word, they believe that attentive reading leads to attentive writing, and that attentive writing has the power to assist in the resurrection
of communities, the imagination, and individual lives.

Underground Writing's founder and director, Matt Malyon, serves on our Underground Ministries Juvenile Detention chaplaincy. Chris is a teaching writer on Underground Writing's team. And we share a passion for helping unearth stories from the underground today.
