The mission of The Grannie Annie is to inspire young people to discover, write, and share stories from their family's history, and to publish collections of their work.

Through its annual publications and additional related activities, The Grannie Annie encourages young people around the world to interview family members to discover stories from their family’s history. When the stories are brought to life in written form, they can be shared with others and preserved for future generations.

There's even more: Behind each family story lie experiences familiar to people in different centuries and on different continents. These simple, and very personal, family stories can help writers and readers to forge a bond with people whose lives may seem very different from their own — and move the world one step closer to peace.
