Young Writers Institute

with Sigmund Brouwer

Meet Aim Academy’s Author-in-Residence, Sigmund Brouwer

January 20, 2022

Sigmund and I founded the Young Writers Institute a couple of decades ago–we held these multi-day events featuring bestselling children and young adult authors in more than 50 cities–often selling out far in advance. We recently reconnected, and immediately realized we were both in a position to relaunch this wildly popular event once again–this time online. I’m thrilled to offer our first YWI 2.0 to our Aim Academy families and friends!
