I Am A Writer!


In this Writers in the Schools (WITS) workshop, students will explore poetry, storytelling, and drama as they create original written pieces. Working with a professional writer, they'll engage in writing adventures that stretch their vocabulary and their imaginations as they discover the joy of storytelling. At the end of the session, our young writers will invite their family and friends to an interactive celebration where they can share their portfolio of work and guide their guests in some of their favorite writing activities so that everyone comes away feeling like a writer!
