On Monday, September 28, the Shoreline community is invited to the Seattle Arts and Lectures’ Writers in the Schools Anthology Reading and Celebration.
The Writers in the Schools Program (WITS) places professional local writers in public schools to develop writing skills and spark inspiration. Since 1994, the WITS program in the Seattle area has been helping students discover their own authentic voices. Featuring creative writing by students in last year’s program, this reading by 60 young authors will move the audience to tears, laughter, awe and wild applause.
This year’s anthology includes writing by Cascade K-8 Community School students Annie Zemouri, Katherine Mercer, Charlotte Rose, Kai Brook, Christian Hoene, and Declan Stark. A number of these students will be among the featured readers.
The readings will take place in the Illsley Ball Nordstrom Recital Hall at Benaroya Hall, beginning at 7pm on September 28. The events are free and open to the public. The young authors will sign copies of the anthology, and a reception will follow, with sweets donated by Cupcake Royale.
