About WITS

Since 1983 WITS has sent professional poets, fiction writers, and playwrights into classrooms in the Houston area to share their love and knowledge of the written word with students and teachers. WITS is also involved in national initiatives, such as mentoring other writers-in-schools programs, serving as a model for multidisciplinary arts educators, and designing curricula for use in schools.

Although the focus of the organization's work takes place in inner-city public schools, WITS also teaches children in art museums, hospitals, community centers, private schools, and juvenile detention centers. WITS years of experience have shown that creative exploration and the resulting self-confidence can have a positive effect on the self-esteem of almost any child, regardless of race, gender, or economic standing.
