Educational Outreach Programs
In 2003, Get Lit! expanded to include educational outreach programs designed to connect professional writers with K-12 low-income, rural, and alternative schools within the Inland Northwest. Our programs currently inspire more than 5,000 students each year. Our goal is to develop child literacy, engage students in literary discussions, offer tools for accessing and awakening each student's own writing ability, and invite students to think critically and creatively about our world. As one sixth-grade student put it, Get Lit! Programs "helps your mind grow."
