Student Writing

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!

Mahdi El Drake
B.F. Day \ Elementary
2012-13
Dear Ando Hiroshige

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

close in.

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.

 

Sincerely,

Mahdi.
