6 Gifts to Give on Encourage a Young Writer Day

By • 4 months ago with one reply

Writing can be a lonely job. You are staring at a page or computer screen as it taunts you with its emptiness. It dares you to fill it with your brilliance. This can be daunting as a seasoned veteran, but even more as a young writer just starting out. Since today is Encourage a Young Writer Day we’ve compiled 6 gifts we think are perfect to give to a young writer.

A personalized pen and journal set

We can keep notes on our smartphones, but some writers have unique ways of diagramming and outlining their work. Personalize a pen and notebook set from Teals Prairie so they can take their notes on the go. You can add customized text to the pen and journal, as well as an initial on the wooden box that comes with the set.

A leather laptop sleeve to hold their computer

Eventually notes and outlines need to be turned into fully written works. This means sitting in front of a laptop and plugging away. Give your young writer a leather laptop sleeve to help protect their computer as they lug it around to coffee shops, the park, or anywhere else they get inspiration for writing.

A USB flash drive

The nightmare of any writer is losing works-in-progress and works completed. A USB flash drive is the perfect place to keep additional copies of poems, essays, short stories, and other writing.

Writer award block

Receiving recognition is always fun. Give your favorite young writer a little recognition with an award block. You can add a cool design, like this inspiration to continue writing!

An engraved watch

Writing is about crafting a universe for characters to live in, and for readers to visit. When the words are flowing it is easy for a writer to lose track of time. Help them straddle the line between their fictional universe and the real world with an engraved watch.

Support

It’s called Encourage a Young Writer Day for a reason. Submitting written work results in many rejection notes and emails. What young writers need more than anything is support. Losing out on another writing prize or job chips away at a writer’s ego. Having unconditional support gives strength to a young writer. Be sure to share your support with them!
