826 Quarterly Volume 13

826 Quarterly Volume 13
$15.00
The 826 Quarterly contains fiction, non-fiction, and poetry written by authors ages 6-18. The pieces are selected from all the 826 Valencia programs (drop-in tutoring, workshops, in-schools, projects, field trips) and at-large submissions. Pieces are chosen in a traditional literary journal style by an editorial board comprised of students and volunteer tutors.

This issue features poetry about subjects ranging from a pet crow to confused holidays, investigative journalism covering UFO conventions, the dark side of Justin Bieber, and the pros and cons of a spy career, short fiction about zombies turned flying jellyfish and a carrot and horse romance, in addition to many other stories, poems, and non-fiction works.

Like all writing coming out of 826 Valencia, this is by kids for kids, in a language that doesn't talk up or down to the readers, but straight across. Some of the pieces are straightforward, some unusually experimental. The writing is advanced and the themes explore issues that kids are actually interested in and that adults are sure to enjoy as well.
