Writing Workshops

Emotions play a huge role in how we remember places important to us. Students explore this by writing memoirs, using plot, dialogue, and description to bring their stories to life.

In this workshop from 826NYC, students write about their personal experiences with social media and online platforms.

The school week has never been this fun

After-School Writing Lab (AWL) is a group of young writers and mentors that meets after school at our 826DC writing center in Columbia Heights! We build our community through short writing and publishing projects, play games, enjoy 826DC’s onsite library, and hold space for homework help and choice-based small group activities. Students build confidence, strengthen their writing skills, and make friends with fellow authors.

After-School Writing Lab prioritizes applications from DC-based families whose students are eligible for free or reduced lunch or self-identify as English Language Learners.

We explore different writing genres and styles

We often publish student stories in chapbooks like this one
