About Mighty Writers North


2300 Master St., Philadelphia, PA 19121, US

Mission Statement

Think clearly and write with clarity is our battle cry, our tagline, our mantra. It's served as our mission statement since our launch in 2009.


MW North was originally launched in 2015 in collaboration with the Church of the Advocate, an institutional leader in civil rights advocacy in North Philadelphia. We now occupy a large, well-lit writing center in the new Vaux Family Center. Big Picture High School is in the same building (the old Vaux High School), but you need not attend the high school to participate in our programs. Kids from all over North Philly attend workshops at MW North. All are welcome!
