This is a very special issue of the 826 Quarterly, a more-like-twice-yearly publication containing fiction, non-fiction, and poetry written by authors ages 6-18. This issue celebrates the 10th anniversary of 826 Valencia, an educational non-profit based in San Francisco, CA, and contains the best of the best student writing from across the last decade. This Quarterly has it all: short fiction from some of the first writers to start their careers in 826 workshops, middle school love poems in all their mushy and yucky-ness, hard-hitting student journalism about mermaids and Martin Luther King, Jr., a teenager's view of growing up in San Francisco's Mission District. Themes range from the serious subjects that youth wrestle with, like coming of age, to forays into love and poetry about outer space. This issue also features a play about the president that gives great insight into high school life in 2003, another script in which Darkness helps a young girl, stories about horse books and silk pouches, and some 826 Valencia all-time favorites including letters to the first family. Complete with a forward penned by the elusive Lemony Snicket, this issue is packed with pieces guaranteed to inform, entertain, and inspire readers of all ages.
