Inspiration Station


In this Writers in the Schools (WITS) workshop, students will explore the art of poetry, storytelling, and essays as they discover what inspires them and drives them to share their stories. Modeled after the supportive environment of a college creative writing workshop, students will share their original work and offer feedback on each other’s, learning the value of revision and collaboration as they become stronger writers. Parents and family will be invited to hear students read their favorite pieces at the end of workshop celebration, and students will leave with a portfolio of their own work.
