Bring WITS To Your School
For the past seven years, Writers in the Schools has brought creative enthusiasm, motivation for writing, and higher TCAP writing scores to children and young adults in dozens of Colorado communities, and it can do the same in yours.
EDUCATORS: To host a series of Writers in Schools sessions in your school, contact Bess Maher, 303.894.7951 x19 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Grant funding through national organizations provides a large chunk of the funding for the WITS program, but local support has also been a key element of sustaining the program in many schools.
