Local Spotlight: 826 NYC
“I have lived a thousand lives and I’ve loved a thousand loves. I’ve walked distant worlds and seen the end of time. Because I read.” – George R.R. Martin
Reading enhances the lives of all those who dare explore far-off lands, fall in love, and meet countless people by opening the pages of a book. Although, without writers, you wouldn’t be able to dive headfirst into the fictional worlds drafted by these creative minds.
826 NYC encourages young students to find their voice, build confidence, and use their imagination to write nonfiction and creative stories. Keep reading to learn more!
826 NYC Programs
826 NYC offers several different programs in which students between the ages of six and 18 can enroll. Each program teaches students the necessary skills needed to compose a story while also promoting creative ideas.
Some of the programs offered by 826 NYC include:
- Write Away Workshops: This 5-week workshop gives students the chance to develop their creative voice over multiple genres. Multiple workshops run throughout the year with different themes, like mythology, space, and mystery.
- Write Together: This program offers something unique to each age group. Young students learn the art of storytelling and will see their story published at the end of the program. Middle schoolers will take a deeper look at characterization and will make their own choose-your-own-adventure stories. High schoolers will take their experiences and turn them into memoirs and poetry.
- Write After School: In this after-school program, students will enhance both their reading and writing skills. Celebration readings are also part of this program to help build confidence.
826 NYC also publishes the works of students for the world to enjoy.
