about the innovation

Who we are?

OUR STORY

In 2014, Julie Carey was introduced to ebook creation as an educational tool while teaching in Jakarta, Indonesia. She discovered Book Creator’s software that allowed for the use of both oral and written languages. As an English Language Acquisition educator, she recognized the potential for language development and preservation as well as cross-cultural connections on a global scale through ebook publishing in a collaborative library. Write Our World received 501(c)3 determination in March of 2015. Since then, Write Our World has offered its multicultural literary resource to hundreds of youth and their teachers worldwide through memberships and direct services. Won’t you join us?

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to empower multilingual youth worldwide to embrace their languages and cultures while building skills for their future through ebook authoring.

To date, we have published 193 books by 464 authors ages 6-19 & in 27 languages!
