Every Tuesday, here at 826, all summer long, we’ll have drop-in
writing sessions from 3:30-5pm. Students, volunteers, writers,
parents, teachers, poets, and any other interested parties are invited
in to spend ninety minutes a week working through different writing
exercises and prompts.
The idea is this: get a roomful of writers of all ages together, toss
out a couple of different writing activities, and see what happens.
Participants can work in groups or individually, quietly or loudly,
poetically or fictitiously, joyously or grumpily, and all points in
between these, but always, always creatively.
The hope is that at the end of the summer we’ll be able to put
together a zine or some sort of little book highlighting the great
work this group has done.
Join us, starting Tuesday, June 20, at 3:30, for The Let’s See
