Writers for Readers
Writers for Readers is an evening celebrating the power of expression through creative writing and reading. Sponsors and attendees will meet and mingle during a reception and seated dinner, and enjoy a program featuring acclaimed authors Tracy K. Smith and Whitney Terrell.
Proceeds from this event benefit a collaborative partnership between Literacy KC and UMKC’s Creative Writing Program. This innovative program employs Creative Writing graduate students to create, implement, and teach creative writing to teens and adults enrolled in Literacy KC’s Ticket to Read programs throughout the metro.
