Writers in Communities
The Writers in Communities (WIC) program sends published, professional writers into schools, institutions, and other community settings to work alongside students of all ages and abilities. While in residence, the writers and their students create dynamic creative writing projects that challenge, celebrate, inspire and enlighten. Our innovative programs have been recognized by The New York Times and San Antonio Express-News, among others.
Guadalupe Home is a transitional living program for homeless expectant mothers and homeless mothers with infants. Current residents recently worked writing children’s stories with writer Sonya Barrera Eddy through our Writers in Communities program. Their collection of stories, The Magic Mirror, was illustrated by local artist/storyteller Xavier Garza.
