Overview


This edition of the 826 Quarterly contains fiction, non-fiction, and poetry written by authors ages 6-18. The pieces are selected from all the 826 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 fiction, poetry, and non-fiction about subjects ranging from the insanity of Skymall to letters from the dead; news articles on mermaids, and the DREAM act — and so much more.

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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“I used to be a lady. I was a dame, a womb, a sacred secret cave of sighs. But I know now how things go. I know the world is a series of mirrors you can't look past. I know a mirror placed parallel to a mirror casts an image that can't end. I know that everything I see is something that's already happened, something I can't touch."
— from the book
