One free book. One author visit. Infinite inspiration.
For more than 30 years, our signature education program has brought a diverse range of authors, along with free copies of their books, into DC classrooms. When students meet authors in person, their stories become real, urgent, and meaningful.
If you’re a DC educator interested in working with Writers in Schools, have questions about our programming, or would like to request our current list of available writers, please contact us at [email protected].
We’re always looking for writers willing to engage with young people about their book, the writing and publishing process, or the larger themes and ideas in their work. If you would like to become a Writers in Schools author, please contact us at [email protected] and read our FAQs.
