Wildcat Writers is a network of high school and college writing teachers and students who collaborate to foster creative and critical literacies and engage in meaningful community-based action beyond the classroom. The 2017 recipient of the UA's Peter Likins Inclusive Excellence Award, our organization constructs college access pathways for underrepresented students and nurtures the development of a social justice-oriented, national movement for high school-college partnership programs.


  • Wildcat Writers facilitates reciprocal learning partnerships between the UA Writing Program and local area high schools.
  • Participants connect with audiences in the broader community to promote public engagement, encouraging personal, professional, and intellectual growth for students and teachers.
