Literary Arts is committed to providing greater access for public high school students to experience and participate in literary activities that deepen and extend their school’s existing curriculum and contribute to college and career readiness.
Complimentary tickets and transportation to attend Portland Arts & Lectures are available to high school student groups through Students to the Schnitz. In order for students to be prepared for the lecture, books are also provided prior to the lecture, and delivered to your school free of charge.
Applications for Students to the Schnitz are closed for the 2016/2017 season.
We start planning Students to the Schnitz in June, after the announcement of our event season.
If you have any questions, please contact Mary Rechner, Director of Youth Programs via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Join Portland Arts & Lectures subscribers who, together with NW Natural, raised over $20,000 to for tickets and transportation to send students to the Schnitz and authors to the schools.
This was my first time hearing an author talk about their life and books, and it helps me think about what I want to do more with my life. It was a wonderful experience.”
