Over the past 40 years WITS has been on a journey to inspire students to use their writing and voices to promote change in the educational and communal sphere. Working in schools, hospitals, community centers, and more, our stories are inked onto the pages of the City of Houston and beyond.

On this journey, we as an organization have learned what it means to truly be leaders and advocates of the literary arts. We have unearthed and challenged our past as we eagerly wait for our story to continue to unfold. Alongside our funders, partners, writing community, teachers, and students we continue to write our story with the same passion and joy seen in each of our classrooms. As we continue this odyssey, we welcome you to join our story.
