Each volume of The 826 Quarterly features cutting-edge writing by students in the 826 Valencia workshops, as well as budding talents from California and beyond. Printed in a hip pocket-friendly size, this edition features a different perspective on the story of Rapunzel, short fiction about elephants, a dictionary of necessary new words, the story behind a recipe for chocolate milk pizza, and a wide selection of articles from our student newspaper including investigative reports on fairies, the future, local sustainable farming, and whether Spongebob Squarepants is better than Pacman. And that is just a small fraction of the amazing work found in this most recent volume. The poems, short stories, and nonfiction pieces, comprising both traditional and experimental writing, talk not up or down but straight across to young readers.
