WRITERS IN THE SCHOOLS READINGS

Writers in the Schools (WITS) has served public high school students with creative writing residencies in Portland since 1996. Published local writers collaborate with classroom teachers to lead an immersive semester-long workshop series, and culminates with a public reading, ordinarily held in a local café or bookstore. With distance learning, we look forward to hosting our readings via Zoom and invite you to join us and support the next generation of writers.

Our mission is to engage readers, support writers, and inspire the next generation with great literature.
