The Arizona Public School Tax credit is a dollar for dollar refund on the taxes you owe the state of Arizona.
When you support a partner school with your tax credit, you fund the Poetry Center's Writing the Community program and make possible six to eight-week-long creative writing residencies with expert teaching artists for area students in local classrooms.
Writing the Community annually serves thirty area classrooms, with a special focus on Title One schools. In addition to exceptional opportunities for in-class writing experiences, students have the opportunity to meet nationally renowned poets visiting Tucson in the Poetry Center's Reading and Lecture Series, and to have their work published in our annual city-wide anthology of student work. Students participate in a reading and anthology launch at the Poetry Center each spring. Watch the video below to learn more about Writing the Community and the impact of the program:
