Young Writers Publish

826NYC wants to partner with your school, community-based, or nonprofit organization to create customized writing programs for your students.

Turn your classroom into a creative writing lab. During Young Writers Publish residencies, 826NYC teaching artists collaborate with educators on creative, impactful, curriculum-aligned projects that transform students into published authors. Residencies run from six weeks to a full year, depending on the project. Each Young Writers Publish culminates in a book, newspaper, zine, podcast, film, or performance featuring your students.

We will continue to adjust our plans for this program in response to the decisions of the NYC Department of Education and how they choose to adjust school practices during the 2020-21 school year.


Please reach out to our Director of Education, Naomi Solomon, at with any questions, or to book your residency today!
