DESCRIPTION: The Writers at Newark High School program provides English teachers at local high schools with excerpts from the works of nationally known poets, novelists, short story, and nonfiction writers from the Reading Series.

Students have the opportunity to hear these writers present their work and also to participate in discussions.
