Writers in the Schools (WITS) offers NEW online classes open to members and the public! Creative Writing Camp Online sessions are taught by professional teachers and writers who have mastered the ability to layer social and emotional support for students through daily online instruction.

Participants will explore the wonderful world of creative writing with experiences that are designed with students’ engagement and interest in mind. Classes will be taught online via Zoom or Google Classroom.

Each session, WITS writers will incorporate a virtual field trip experience to a cultural site or museum; your young writer will get to experience sites here in Houston and around the world! At the end of each session, your student will share finished pieces in a celebration, and they will have started a portfolio of their own work.
