Writers in the Schools

Storytelling reveals our truest selves. Since 1983, Writers in the Schools (WITS) has worked hand-in-hand with educators and professional writers to teach students the craft of writing. WITS is transforming the hearts and minds of young people all over Houston.


Hurricane Harvey

If Harvey were a person, he would be skinny, or strong and loud like a radio.

tiger or a shark. Or a shark tornado, super-fast.
