because writing is revolutionary
If you are interested in starting a Writers in the Schools (WITS) program, a great place to learn more and meet allies in this field will be at the AWP Conference in Chicago. Click here to get more information and here to register for the conference. WITS Alliance members get the “AWP Member” registration rate.
In addition to the WITS content (panels, membership meeting, reception), you will have a chance to hear readings and talks by authors such as Art Spiegelman, ZZ Packer, Lucille Clifton, Kwame Dawes, Wang Ping, Tomaz Salamun, and many others.
