WITS Back-to-School Luncheon

WITS Back-to-School Luncheon

Past Event: Wednesday, October 2, 2019

At Grand Hyatt Seattle

Registration for our 2019 WITS Back-to-School Luncheon is now closed. If you have any questions, please contact SAL Development Director Leanne Skooglund at 206-621-2230 x17.

Come be inspired by the courage and imagination of our next generation of creative writers. This 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.

Cost of attendance is free; the suggested donation is $150 to help thousands more local K-12 students discover the power of their creative writing and performance voices.

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!
