What We Do

Josh Crews Writing Project

The ability to effectively communicate and inspire is a lifelong skill that is valuable regardless of career choice. The Josh Crews writing project inspires young authors by giving them a means by which they can write their own stories and even have them published. When these students see their work in print it is truly priceless. This creates a fun and inspiring learning environment that truly helps shapes a child. Not to mention a springboard for future authors.

This program was established in memory of Flagler Palm Coast High School graduate, Josh Crews, who tragically died at a young age. His love of the English language and people in general was inspirational. He never met a stranger and was loved by many. His memory lives on each time a child participates in this life altering program.

The 2021 school year looked very different and so did the Josh Crews Writing program. This year we had 55 authors participate in the anthology. If you would like to purchase a copy of the 2021 Josh Crews Writing Anthology, click the picture above of the cover. Books cost $15 and will be mailed to you.

Josh Crews Writing Project Fundraising Event

Each year The Flagler County Education Foundation and the Josh Crews Writing Gala Committee coordinate a fundraising event to support the writing program in each school financially. The annual event revolves around a novel, usually one that Josh Crews enjoyed reading. Due to COVID-19, the committee has decided to hold a Drive-In movie at Epic Theatre. The drive-in movie is FREE and open to the public. Bring your own chair if you want to sit in front of the movie screen instead of in your car. Food vendors will be available to purchase food during the movie. If you would like to join The Griswold family in the VIP tent for the hap-hap-happiest event of the year, tickets are still available. Tickets for the VIP tent are $100 per person and may be purchased here. Costumes are encouraged under the VIP tent. Food and holiday cheer will be provided in the VIP tent.

There are also three sponsorship levels available, and all proceeds fund the Josh Crews Writing Project. This year we will be printing the 10th Annual Write On! book. The book is an anthology that includes written pieces by Flagler Schools students.
