Have I Ever Been to the Moon?

For eight years, Seattle Arts & Lectures’ Writers in the Schools (WITS) program has been hosting writer residencies at Seattle Children’s Hospital, and school-aged patients have been working alongside our teaching poets Sierra Nelson and Ann Teplick to create remarkable, inventive, powerful poems that explore their imaginations, capture their experiences, and share their journeys.

Six years ago, WITS began a partnership with artists from the School of Visual Concepts—all of whom volunteer their talents and time—to transform our students’ poems into gorgeous letterpress designs hand-printed as broadsides. The 2018/19 WITS Broadsides Collection is currently traveling to libraries and public spaces across Seattle for the entire city to enjoy.
