Our Story


Executive Board: Lois Brown, Tahsha Wilson, Jennifer Jenkins, Jo Layton, Margie Jordan

Operation Literacy (formerly known as Writers Cubed) originally began in 2009 with five writers determined to use their growing platforms to benefit aspiring teen authors.

In 2011, they hosted their first Teen Author Boot Camp, which is now the largest teen writers conference in the country. Today, that dream has expanded to support young readers and writers across the nation with several national programs all fueled by the belief that literacy unlocks a successful future for EVERY child.
