Here are a couple of 826LA’s upcoming writing and tutoring workshops for kids:

Write to Create on Saturday, July 17 from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm – Imagine you are shown a mysterious, intricate object. Your critical mission is to write a description of how to build this object, only using words. No drawing allowed! Then, to test your skills, your partner will be given the materials to build this object and your instructions. How well they recreate the mystery object depends exclusively on your attention to detail! Do you think you are up for this challenge?

8 – 2 = 6 (Eight Minus Two is Six) on Saturday, July 31 from 1:00 to 3:00 pm – This workshop is for those who fall asleep while doing their math (or, even worse, have nightmares too) *and* students who would eat math instead of Cap’n Crunch for breakfast if they could. Every student in attendance will learn to harness the most intense math they know to create an infinitely elegant short story.

Both workshops are for kids ages 8 to 12. A $25 deposit check is required to reserve space in the workshop. Click here to sign up.
