We live in a creative world where ideas, collaboration, and adaptability are a must–and writing is essential. So how do we prepare our children for their future? How do we ensure that they become thoughtful leaders for change, passionate learners, and curious thinkers we need to improve our world? Through Writers in the Schools programs, young people discover the power within themselves to create, innovate, and connect with others.


WITS programs work because we approach writing as an exploration. Students will begin to see feel the power that comes for clear self-expression. Whether they’re not sure how to get started or they already write a million pages a day, they’ll feel at home writing here. This is where the spark of creativity begins.
