(WZZM) - The Creative Youth Center just wrapped up their "Captain's Affair" fundraiser, an event geared toward supporting their cause: promoting creative writing among local youth.

The Creative Youth Centeroffers a wide variety of writing services including in school writing workshops and after school homework help and tutoring. The services are tailored for ages 6-18.

One of the greatest gifts the center gives its students is publication. Writing students have the unique opportunity to have their stories published in real, bound books. You can purchase the books at Schuler Books on 28th Street and at The Creative Youth Center, located at 758 Wealthy Street SE in Grand Rapids.
