Fall 2016 Writers in Baltimore Schools Logo, Website Design & Development
Writers in Baltimore Schools is a program that fosters literary development by bringing creative writing workshops directly to students in Baltimore area schools. Students study literature and, with the help of volunteer tutors, create polished pieces of writing, including stories, poems, and plays. Students also have the opportunity to be published in a literary magazine and present their work aloud at community readings.
WBS works with the community to provide these unique opportunities, and needed a website that effectively communicated their mission to students, parents, teachers, volunteers, and donors. I worked with the director, Patrice Hutton, to redesign their current site to speak more clearly to these different groups, as well as provide important information on upcoming events.
Because the previous WBS website was built in Wordpress, we decided to continue to use Wordpress for the new design. This allowed us to easily transition the existing content into the new site, as well as take advantage of Wordpress plugins for event management.
