Each year, Writers in the Schools (WITS) publishes an annual anthology of exemplary student work. Casually Bringing Monsoons showcases poetry, prose, drama, and comics written by high school students from Portland’s public high schools in 2015-16. Being published is thrilling for writers of any age. Publication provides writers with validation, encouragement, and exposure to a larger audience. All proceeds from the sale of the anthologies goes back to support WITS programming.
