Write All About It

Write All About It, nonfiction writing class

Overview

For those inquiring minds who are always asking “why?” and “how?”, who are driven to pick a topic and explore it from every angle, or who just want to tell stories that explain what we see in the world around us, 826NYC presents Write All About It.

In 826NYC’s nonfiction writing class, young writers learn about and report on a new theme each semester. We 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 take place on Zoom, with one special in-person field trip this spring. At the end of each session, students’ writing is published on the class Medium page, in a zine, or in another format specific to the chosen topic.

This spring, we’ll focus on media and entertainment to learn more about who makes our favorite shows, movies, music, and games, and how they do it in an 8-week session. Students will learn the art of critique, profile content developers, and take a peek behind the scenes to become tastemakers putting together articles on the best of pop culture and how stories are made through media. This session’s field trip will focus on the world of film.

Field trips will depart from 826NYC (372 Fifth Avenue, Brooklyn) and return there for pick-up. If students are unable to attend field trips, then they will work on writing activities at home to explore the same topics.
