Writing Workshops

Being stuck inside is the perfect time to flex our writing muscles. Our young authors will come together to learn how to express themselves through free weekly online workshops. We’ll explore different genres and topics, meet new friends, and practice our writing.

It’s no secret that the 826NYC team LOVES food, and writing about it too. Whether you’re interested in being a food critic, creating a food character that goes on a delicious adventure or writing a poem about your Mom’s scrumptious Mac and Cheese, our Food Writing Workshop may just be the icing on your writing skills cake! With a heap of evoking sensory details, a dash of science (do you know how taste works in humans?) and one hunk of hunger-inducing descriptions and voices, we’ll add all our tools onto the blender and create the recipe for a perfect story!
