Writers in the Schools encourages self-expression and literacy among youth through the Meta-Four Houston performance poetry program.  Youth ages 13-19 are invited to participate in weekly workshops and monthly open-mic events across the city.  In the spring and summer, youth are invited to compete in the Space City Slam Series to represent Houston in the Brave New Voices International Festival.

Writers in the Schools is also offering free spoken word workshops for youth 13-19:

  • Every Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday at local neighborhood libraries.
  • No registration is required, and walk-ins are welcome.
  • All events are FREE.
  • Call 713-523-3877 or visit www.witshouston.org for more information.
