Writers in the Schools (WITS) is the #1 literary arts organization in Texas, increasing literacy and nourishing creativity across the nation. With 80 writers and educators on staff, WITS has a reach throughout Houston in classrooms, community centers, museums, parks, and hospitals. This blog provides a snapshot of the organization--who we are, where we are, and what we are all about.
The glory of WITS is best expressed by the students--in their own words -- so this blog features essays, stories, and poems that were created by K-12 students in our program. All material (c) Writers in the Schools 2007-2013. If you wish to republish this work, please credit both the organization and the author and link back to this site.

Supporting WITS will help bring the pleasure and power of reading and writing to more Houston children -- 23,000 students this year -- helping to improve writing skills, build confidence, raise test scores, and enhance creativity.
