A Celebration of Student Writing and Voices
We were so pleased to celebrate the K-12 students in our Writers in the Schools (WITS) program with two nights of readings! Last Wednesday and Thursday, The Seattle Public Library was flooded with the words, voices, and creativity of 32 elementary and middle school students and 24 high school students. Nathan Hale High School student Anna Dong closed the event on Thursday night with her poetic question, “Why am I an artist? To see the world right….” Thanks to these young writers, we can all see our lives a little more clearly.
Special thanks goes to our generous event sponsors, Reed, Longyear, Malnati & Ahrens, PLLC, and Goldman, Sachs & Co. Also much thanks to our sweetness-making in-kind sponsor Cupcake Royale and our community partner The Seattle Public Library, as well as to The Elliott Bay Book Company, Liz Johnson, Paper Hammer, Starbucks, and Greg Stump.
