Workshops



Workshops range from the playful to the practical, and are taught by volunteer writers, artists, educators, and publishing professionals.

Please note: Due to a high interest in this program and our commitment to keeping class sizes small, workshop attendance is determined by lottery. Once the lottery has been drawn, you will be notified of your status. Please only sign up for a workshop if you can make every session, as we generally have a lengthy wait list. If admitted to a workshop, we’ll require a $25 refundable deposit to hold your spot.

Summer Podcasters - Park Slope

This summer, for the first time, 826NYC is going to be making a podcast. Podcasts are emerging as a popular method of storytelling. From “This American Life” to “99% Invisible,” podcasts have proven that stories, both made up and real, can find an audience. Over the course of two weeks, students will work in a team to write, record, and produce a podcast entirely of their own choosing. It might be an “in depth look at the bagel stores of Park Slope” or “stories from middle school” or something entirely different, If you would like to be a part of this inaugural “Summer Podcasters” workshop please fill in the following details.

8 Sessions: Mondays-Thursdays July 18-21 and July 25-28 from 3-5pm for ages 10-13
at the Brooklyn Superhero Supply Co. at 372 Fifth Avenue in Park Slope
