Mission Statement

California Poets in the Schools empowers students of all ages throughout California to express their creativity, imagination, and intellectual curiosity through writing, performing and publishing their own poetry. We train and coordinate a multicultural network of published poets, who bring their passion and craft to public and private schools, juvenile halls, hospitals, libraries and other community settings.

Description

California Poets in the Schools is the nation's largest writer-in-residence program. We place over 100 poets in as many as 300 California schools in 29 counties, and serve an average of 25,000 K-12 students each year. CPITS is sponsored by the California Arts Council, the National Endowment for the Arts, foundations, corporations, and private donors. We also co-sponsor, with the California Arts Council and the Poetry Foundation, the national poetry recitation competition, Poetry Out Loud.
