We take a deeper approach to literacy.


Deep Center is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that provides free, fun, and rigorous writing workshops for public school students in Savannah, Georgia. We connect kids with a thriving community of writing mentors—local authors, poets, and journalists—to help them share their stories. We take a deeper approach to literacy by challenging kids to engage with language through creative writing. We help them write with skill, confidence, and courage, and we showcase each kid's best work.  



Who we are, what we do, why we do it, and the results of our work.
