Thursdays 4:00-6:00pm | This class meets on Zoom with 3 in-person field trips per semester
Do you love exploring a topic from top to bottom? Do you find yourself asking why and how every time you learn something new? Do you love to work your ideas out on the page? It sounds like you might be ready to Write All About It!
In 826NYC’s nonfiction writing class, Write All About It, students will learn and report on a new theme each semester! We’ll go in depth with research, interviews, and field trips to learn everything there is to know about a big topic in our lives, all while honing our observation skills and building our strengths as writers. Classes will take place on Zoom, with 3 in-person field trips each semester. At the end of each semester, students’ writing will be published on the class Medium page, in a zine, or in another format specific to the topic of the semester.
>> Field trips will depart from 826NYC (372 Fifth Avenue) and return there for pick-up. If students are unable to attend field trips, they will receive alternate instructions to complete class projects.
Let’s Dish: Food Journalism
This fall, Write All About It digs into food writing! Students will hone their descriptive writing with mouth-watering details, and will investigate the histories of favorite foods, interview some of the people who put food on our tables, and learn more about where our food comes from. Through the exploration of food, we will travel through different cultures and explore histories from around the world. Field trips this semester will include a tasting, a visit to an urban farm, and a class with a chef!
