Local students produce three new publications through the nonprofit 826CHI.
“It Went to the Moon” is a bilingual chapbook written by students of 826CHI’s After School Writing Lab.
“Tomorrow’s Titans” is a collection of poetry and creative writing from sixth-grade students attending Chicago Math & Science Academy.
“Archives of My Memory” is a collection of poetry and creative writing from ninth through 12th-grade students of 826CHI’s Teen Writers Studio.
They are available for pre-order now and are expected to ship by the end of July 2023.
826CHI is the local branch of 826 National, a nonprofit that supports students ages 6 to 18 to encourage and give a platform to their creative and expository writing skills. The organization focuses on students from marginalized backgrounds, low-income students, and students from schools with limited arts and literacy-based education programs.
