I'm Julie Bogart, creator and owner of Brave Writer®, the online writing and language arts program.

I love writing.
I love kids.
I love parents!

I consider it the most serendipitously wonderful collision of loves that I get to be involved with all three every day. Early on, I put in my time in the professional writing world through editing, ghost-writing, and freelancing. I found out from homeschooling friends that the writing programs they were using were leaving their kids in tears and hating writing. I saw a chance to change the trajectory of how writing instruction is delivered. I applied what I knew from professional writing instruction to kids and saw breakthrough after breakthrough. My wonderful team has helped create what I think is the most effective writing program available today.

As of 2024, Brave Writer® has taught nearly one million students how to write, and to feel comfortable and confident doing it!
