The Valencia Bay-farer Issue 52 reading and release party
Over five weeks in January and February, fifteen young journalists between the ages of eight and thirteen joined a dozen tutors here in the 826 Valencia Writing Lab to develop content for the fifty-second issue of our in-house newspaper, the Valencia Bay-farer. Students investigated and wrote on topics ranging from serious to silly, reporting on the Charlie Hebdo attack in Paris, and the skateboards of the future (hoverboards, of course!), among other current events and popular interest pieces. The workshop wraps on the evening of Wednesday, February 4, with a reading and release party where the journalists will read their pieces for their families and peers. The event is open to the 826 community, from tutors and volunteers to anyone curious about our workshop programming.
