Since the founding of WITS in 1994, our writers-in-residence have been lucky to work with thousands of students in the Puget Sound region. We showcase our students’ talents every chance we get: on stage before our Literary/Arts Series lectures and Poetry Series readings; at our year-end reading and celebration; in program-wide collections and classroom anthologies; in local coffee shops and libraries; even on bookmarks, buttons, and t-shirts. Please enjoy this sampling of student stories and voices. And find more on our WITS blog!
Go to a mountain valley.
Smell the fresh air.
See the mountain, stare at its texture,
hear the beautiful sound of the waterfall crashing.
Watch as the clouds slowly
Feel the heat of the sunset.
Touch the whole of Japan
as if it was a piece of dust.
You will be done when you can fly
into your painting.
