Write All About It!
Have you ever wondered why some stories make headlines for weeks and others never get told? What about the difference between an op-ed and an investigative report?
Whether you’ve always dreamed of a New York Times byline or you’re still wondering what a byline is, welcome to 826NYC’s journalism program! In Write All About It, reporters from grades 5-8 will learn how to conduct a great interview, how to write a classic news story, and more importantly, how to sniff out where the great untold stories of Brooklyn are hiding! We’ll focus on hyper-local news — you might break a story right on your block! — and see how it connects to what’s going on across the country and around the world. Student work will be published regularly on 826NYC’s Medium page.
This program is free and students who are eligible for the former free & reduced lunch program will be prioritized. This program is virtual for the Spring 2021 semester and will be held on Zoom.
This program will be virtual for the 2020-21 school year.
