826LA just announced their upcoming writing workshops for kids and teenagers. Over the next month and a half, kids can learn to do things like write a screenplay, create a piece of fantasy writing and re-imagine Valentine’s Day (jealous!). Check out the listing on their website for more details and to sign up!
826LA is also working on a project called High School Students – Talk Back! In their own words:
“You, this generation’s high school students, know so much about education—and yet you’re rarely asked. 826LA is working with other 826 chapters nationwide to produce a sequel to 826 Valencia’s Talking Back: What Students Know About Teaching. Come to the 826LA writing labs and work with 826LA tutors to write essays for this book, for possible publication by Edutopia and The New Press!”
