Every child has a story to tell. As the largest literary arts organization in Texas and the leader of an international movement for creative learning, Writers in the Schools (WITS) teaches creative writing to 23,000 children and teachers in Houston annually. WITS helps students explore literacy in creative ways, helping to close gaps in achievement and opportunity. Please join our wonderful 30th anniversary supporters and help WITS provide a creative education to more children in our community. A gift of $50 provides a yearlong education for one child, helping them craft the stories of their lives. We also invite you to join us this November at our annual Celebration of Story benefit and auction.Your support will make a big difference.

On days when I observe the remarkable capacity of school children to open themselves to art without judgment, or to write about art with no restrictions, a connection with the universe seems conceivable, maybe certain. Thanks for your support of this singular program. It elevates us all.
