WITS Reading for Cleveland HS at Ford Food + Drink

by Mel Wells

Fifteen Cleveland High School students shared their work with an audience of friends, family, and other community members at Ford Food + Drink last night. These students spent several weeks working with a WITS writers-in-residence to create, revise, and present their work. Students in two of Susie Brighouse’s English classes worked with writer Alex Behr. Students in two of Eric Levine’s Creative Writing classes worked with writer Leslee Chan. Behr noted that she’d given her students prompts related to “portal to an alternate universe,” fear, and conflict. Behr shared some of her own work as well. 

Huge thanks to all who participated, as readers, as organizers, and as a supportive audience! It was a great night, and we’re looking forward to the second Cleveland reading featuring comics on Wednesday, February 28 at Books With Pictures
