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.

This Is What the World Is marks the successful completion of a partnership between Gemini Ink, NEISD, and Rackspace to bring creative writing workshops to the students at Camelot Elementary and Windcrest Elementary. Gemini Ink hosted these workshops at the schools as part of our Writers in Communities program. Gemini Ink thanks Dr. Kamala Platt and Cris Bazaldua, who led the workshops and brought new insight into the value of literature and reading. We also thank the staff of both Camelot and Windcrest, who are advocates of expanding their students’ access to the arts and literature. Thank you, specifically, to Hope de Lemos, Karen Kohler and Wilma Payne, for their belief in the transformative nature of these writing workshops. Thank you to Rackspace, who funded this project.
