In an effort to provide students more publishing opportunities, WITS is launching a series of digital chapbooks.  (To read the chapbooks, click on the links at right.)

Against the Indigo Sky, Swing Set, and Rumble into Eternity are designed to showcase the creative work students produced during the sixty writing workshops WITS writers taught in Portland Public high schools during the 2008-2009 school year.  (WITS serves all the Portland Public high schools and several alternative programs each year with creative writing workshops, author visits, mentoring, and public readings).

The digital chapbooks are companions to the WITS print anthology, A Whole New Subject which is available at independent bookstores Broadway Books, Annie Bloom’s and Powell’s.

Poet, WITS writer, and PSU MFA student Chris Cotrell designed the chapbooks. Each season, a new chapbook will be released. Stay tuned.
