WITS Students

Local high school students featured in the 2020-21 Literary Arts Writers in the Schools program anthology, Curiosity in Ones and Zeros, will read from their work at the anthology launch.

About Writers in the Schools: Literary Arts’ Writers in the Schools (WITS) program brings working writers into high school classrooms to inspire students to write, revise, edit, and publish their writing. WITS writers collaborate with teachers to create inspiring and dynamic curricula that meet the goals for arts learning, while also helping students understand the real-world importance of reading and writing in all aspects of life. WITS writers share their expertise and personal experience of the writing life, helping youth learn to use writing as a form of creative self-expression.
