It was a packed house in the Sondland/Durant Trustee Boardroom of the Portland Art Museum on the evening of May 15. Friends, family, and community members came to listen to poetry and prose by Lincoln High School students, who had worked with WITS writers-in-residence Amanda Gersh, Cindy Williams Gutierrez, and Joe Rogers. These writers taught in the classes of Jordan Gutlerner, Emily Hensley, Cindy Irby, Amanda-Jane Nelson, and Tracey Wyatt, helping students create and revise their writing. It was a fun celebration, with lots of laughter and applause. Thanks to everyone who helped to make this event a success!
