The WITS Celebration of Story is just a few days away! We hope you’ll join us in what will be our most memorable evening yet as we honor Mayor Annise Parker and feature best-selling author Jeannette Walls. Proceeds from the event  will support creative writing programs for under-served Houston children.

WITS has been engaging students in the pleasure and power of reading and writing since 1983. Thank you for helping us to bring the joy of writing to the children who need it most. For just $50, you can give the gift of WITS to a Houston child for an entire year.
