826CHI Teen Writers Studio Book Release
Join 826CHI student, staff, volunteers, friends, and family for the release of the annual Teen Writers Studio chapbook at the Poetry Foundation. 826CHI is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting students ages 6–18 with their creative and expository writing skills, and to helping teachers inspire their students to write.
Throughout the school year, members of the Teen Writers Studio meet at 826CHI to practice writing and explore their personal styles. Professional authors visit to lead workshops, share their experiences as writers, and introduce students to a variety of genres. Students explore literature and writing across the rich cultural landscape of Chicago, attending live lit events and Chicago Ideas Week talks. This chapbook is the culmination of all of that hard work and growth, and cause for celebration.
