I Wish I’d Written That

boy-reading-bw-square.jpgThe WITS Alliance is launching its first campaign, I Wish I’d Written That, this month.  Five renown authors participated in a series of six television public service announcements. All five authors donated their performances to the cause. The idea for the campaign came from the Houston production company ttweak, and funding was provided by an anonymous donor.
