"Caits made enormous impact on our organization, inspiring students to produce work beyond their wildest dreams; helping teachers unlock creative potential giving them courage to take risks; advancing our strategic thinking as a community, and bringing her vision, optimism, hope and soul into every situation. Wherever Caits is, that is where the sun is shining."
— PHILIP COURTNEY, CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER, URBAN ARTS PARTNERSHIP
"There is no doubt in my mind that Caits will continue to contribute to our culture’s understanding of poetry and the living word. She models precisely the kind of poet who can make things happen, not only for herself, but for those around her."
— PATRICK ROSAL, AUTHOR OF BONESHEPHERDS
"Caits ran the Tribeca Film Institute's Tribeca Teaches while I was Executive Director, and the program thrived under her direction. Caits is that rare combination of creative force and consummate professional and I have no hesitation in recommending her fully!"
— BETH JANSON, MEDIA & PHILANTHROPY CONSULTANT
"When Caits facilitated a poetry workshop with women, ages 16-24, in a New York correctional facility, I was in awe of the way she quickly built strong, authentic relationships with participants and was able to transform an often chaotic environment into a space ripe with emotional safety."
— KARLA ROBINSON, MS.ED, ARTS ADMIN, EDUCATOR AND POET
