Write To Connect now offers classes at arts therapy center in Tampa!

Write To Connect is happy to be working with TPAC, a new physical/occupational/speech therapy and arts center for people with disabilities. W2C will be offering two classes, as posted below, on Fridays.

TPAC seeks to transform lives through adaptive arts education. Many thanks to Lourdes and Mattie for inviting me to work with them!
