The iWRITE Literacy Organization is turning 10 YEARS OLD! Please celebrate with us at our Anniversary Luncheon & Book Signing on Saturday, November 2, 2019 at 12:00 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency Downtown Houston. This year's theme will celebrate iWRITE's International Diversity. 

Come meet the one-hundred newly published young authors and illustrators who will sign their books and walk the red carpet, one of the most recognized iWRITE traditions! Enjoy readings from our Editor's Choice Recipients. We encourage you to wear traditional clothes that represent your culture. You will be sure to leave inspired. 

Since 2009 iWRITE has published over 650 young writers in the 3rd-12th grade in the I Write Short Stories by Kids for Kids Anthologies and worked with thousands of students through our "i" The Guy Creative Writing Journal program. Being published at a young age promotes positive self-esteem and encourages a healthy sense of competition. We believe it is important to add early successes during childhood as we shape the future of our community. As the organization continues to grow, we need your support to increase the number of economically disadvantaged schools that will benefit from iWRITE's writing and publishing programs.
