Administered by the PEN/Faulkner Foundation, Writers in Schools is a literary arts program dedicated to developing the next generation of readers.

Since 1989, Writers in Schools has been bringing authors into public and public charter high schools to meet with students. PEN/Faulkner provides free copies of authors’ books to students and free curricular materials to instructors. By providing resources to students and instructors and by meeting students where they already are—their own classrooms—Writers in Schools aims to create a lifelong love of literature among today’s young readers.
