Start the Program in Your Area

Are you interested in connecting writers with teachers and students in your region?  

We hope so, because we want schools and students everywhere to benefit from welcoming writers into their classrooms. 

In July 2014, PEN/Faulkner will announce a Request for Proposal on this page, which will provide guidance on how to create Writers in Schools affiliate sites, and a timeline for that process. 

We have built this site to be a web resource for connecting literary and educational communities across the country, and you’re a vital piece of that process. We look forward to working together to introduce a generation of readers to the writers who surround them. 

In the meantime, please look around the site, make use of the curriculum resources, and send it along to people you know who also care about reading, writing, and teaching.  

If you have questions, feel free to email us at

See you in July!
