WITS Back-to-School Breakfast

Four Seasons Hotel
Please join us for the WITS Back-to-School Breakfast and help inspire thousands of K-12 students to engage in the power and the pleasure of the literary arts!
The breakfast raises funds for SAL’s Writers in the Schools (WITS) program, which places professional writers in local schools for year-long residencies to teach creative writing in close partnership with classroom teachers.
As a result, students gain essential literacy skills that support them throughout their lives, teachers develop new innovative teaching skills, and local writers are employed to inspire the next generation of writers and readers.
“WITS has made the students enjoy writing more...This has crossed over into every subject. Once students learn the enjoyment of writing there is no end to what they can do.” – BF Day teacher
