Meet our Fall
The Racine Arts Council (RAC) Writer-In-Residence (WIR) program is an initiative founded by ArtRoot (a collaboration of artists and arts advocates who are determined to reinvigorate Racine, WI through the arts) and implemented by the RAC. Through this new program, we seek to spotlight Racine and Kenosha’s dynamic literary community while encouraging, supporting, and advocating on behalf of writers at all stages of their careers.
