This multi-media gallery—alphabetized by students’ last names—honors the time students spent writing and creating with WITS during the digital, then hybrid, 2020/21 school year. This gallery is a testament to the hard work and creative voices of K-12 public school students, writers, teachers, and communities across the Puget Sound area. Through this digital gallery, student work can be seen, shared, and celebrated across the world and, we hope, serve as a source of inspiration and connection for family and community near and far.
Written by students throughout K-12 Puget Sound region public school classrooms and at Seattle Children’s Hospital, these pieces inspire us all to notice and appreciate the changing world in this historical moment, and many ways in which students are processing the vast array of experiences they have witnessed and faced over the past year.
Click through the galleries below to see, hear, and read the creative writing performed by WITS students, with special introductions from their WITS Writers-in-Residence. We are grateful to these students, and their many fellow classmates, for providing such a rich and beautiful archive of this last year of life, online schooling, and pandemic experiences, and hope our community will be buoyed by listening to their voices.
