Last year, more than 52,000 students received high-quality, creative writing mentorship from local authors, poets, and performers in school, community, and hospital classrooms. Your support will amplify our continued work to help children, teachers, parents, and community members tell their stories.
“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
