2017 Back-to-School Luncheon to support WITS WED, SEP 27, 2017, 12:00 PM

The event will raise essential funding for SAL’s Writers in the Schools (WITS) program, which matches talented professional writers with local public schools and Seattle Children’s Hospital for year-long writing residencies. Last year WITS writers helped more than 6,000 students at 27 public schools to build self-confidence, community, and essential writing skills as they learned to tell their unique stories through creative writing.

Come hear firsthand from students, writers and teachers at the Back-to-School Luncheon about how the WITS program changes lives, and how you can be a part of that change. We would love to see you there!

Admission is free; all guests will be invited to make a donation.
