Your company is doing a great thing for our youth! Writing down thoughts and feelings is a way to express what's inside and very healthy! I pray for all of you to receive a blessing for the kindness and generosity toward our family. Creative Communication is the "real thing!" They deliver a wonderful anthology jammed with the words of our youth - BRAVO!

---- Donna McCracken - Parent

The news of having our daughter's poem published in your anthology has boosted her self confidence and determination to be more creative and competitive. She has gained more respect among her peers and is now taking more leadership roles in class. Keep up the good work of recognizing our future leaders!

---- Dr. and Mrs. Takyi - Parents

I must thank you with my full heart for the confidence and self esteem boost you have given my child. When I read your letter to him it brought tears to my eyes. You see, you have helped my son believe in himself again. For this I am forever grateful and commend you for your program of publishing young poets' thoughts. I extend my warmest regards.

---- Kelly Kathleen Kernich - Parent
