Our Mission & Programs
We believe that literacy unlocks a successful future for EVERY child.
Our impact is powered by programs that support our three-fold mission:
1. Help children and teens develop a love of reading and writing.
2. Combat against book deserts by providing books and positive author encounters for the economically disadvantaged.
3. Create a safe and validating community fostering creativity and achievement with measurable and desirable educational outcomes.

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.
Together they built Teen Author Boot Camp, what 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 five national programs all supporting one vital belief that literacy unlocks a successful future for EVERY child.
