Toronto WordSmiths, located in Parkdale Library is a free space for youth (ages 16-29) to come together as a writing community and pool our collective knowledge.


This is a space away from an imposed structure!


In this space we will explore and experiment with new ways of writing; this will also be a place for you to work on your own writing projects. As a writing community we will be able to share our pieces and provide feedback for each other if wanted (and if comfortable). Group discussion and collective learning will be centered around weekly themes and writing prompts.


This group has organizers but we don’t want anyone in charge. This is a creative space to learn from one another and anyone can take the lead!

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable. has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
