As always, the Miss Zumstein Bakery & Coffee Shop was a lovely setting for a WITS student reading on a Thursday afternoon, specifically for students from nearby Meek Pro-Tech High School. Amy Taramasso’s class worked with WITS writer Laura Moulton this semester, and eight of them read their work for an audience of their peers, parents, and Principal Fast Buffalo Horse. One student even brought his guitar and did a musical performance, and Laura read her poem that included all the students’ names. We’re so proud of all the students who produced great work this semester, and want to thank Amy Taramasso for having a WITS writer and Miss Zumstein’s for hosting!
All WITS student readings are free and open to the public, and we have seven more scheduled this spring for Gresham, Lincoln, Franklin, Grant, and Roosevelt High Schools. Check out the schedule and join us in celebrating great work from emerging local writers!
