The Concrete Jungle: Stories About Our City

From the steep paths of Inwood Hill Park to the serene garden in Snug Harbor, New York City has so much to explore. Join us as we learn about how our city came to be — who decided where to put the parks? Why is my street named that? What did my neighborhood look like 50 years ago? We’ll explore these questions and more while writing stories and histories about this city where dreams are made!

About Write Away Workshops

We know that young authors have the power and imagination to go beyond the five-paragraph essay. In Write Away Workshops, students explore a multitude of genres and subjects, and develop their voices as writers. Groups write freely and participate in imaginative writing activities and lessons. Young writers leave each workshop with a piece to be proud of, as well as a newfound understanding of the topic and new friends.
