Writers in the Schools (WITS) celebrates its 16th year of service to local public schools with the launch of In the Sliver of a Second, the 2011-12 anthology of student writing. 

Benaroya Hall - Nordstrom Recital Hall, Sunday, Sept. 30, 5pm, FREE and Open to the Public

The readings feature 50 students from the 26 sites in the 2011-12 WITS program, including two Port Townsend schools, Seattle Children's Hospital, and public elementary, middle, and high schools in Kent, Mercer Island, Seattle, and Shoreline.      
A reception and book-signing will follow the reading, with sweets donated by Cupcake Royale.
The Writers in the Schools program matches a local creative writer with a public elementary, middle or high school or hospital to design innovative and culturally relevant lesson plans that meet the goals of the participating classes while engaging students. The program invigorates both students and teachers with fresh ideas and encouragement. 

The sites featured at this year's readings include:
  • Cascade K-8 Community School, Shoreline
  • Shorecrest High School, Shoreline
  • Shorewood High School, Shoreline 

Seattle Arts and Lectures' Writers in the Schools (WITS) program, founded in 1994, believes that through working collaboratively with classroom teachers and professional, published creative writers, students are empowered to become authors of their own lives. WITS writers-in-residence provide a meaningful role model for every student. 

(If you are one of the students - or a family member of one of the students whose work is included in the anthology, please contact us)
