Last year, WITS reached 68,000 students and their teachers in school, community, and hospital classrooms. Your support is invaluable in ensuring that Houston’s children receive high-quality creative literacy education and mentorship from local authors, poets, and performers.

“Some of my students didn’t enjoy the act of writing at the beginning of the year. WITS opened up their minds to the possibilities and creativity that writing offers. Students that struggled to come up with ideas early on, now immediately pick up their pencil and write.”

– Teacher from Oak Forest Elementary School
