In Person & Online

This four-part reading series features acclaimed poets, writers, and comics artists who teach in SAL’s Writers in the Schools program. These resident writers come together to read from their own works-in-progress, inspiring the same craft and performance skills they teach in the classroom.

Join us in this free event at Hugo House to celebrate the brilliance of the WITS writer cohort on January 18, 2023!
