8.26 on 8/26: Today’s the Day!



For you to make a difference for 826National and its youth writing programs nationwide. Make a donation of $8.26 on August 26th by texting “WRITE” to 20222 or giving online at http://www.826on826.org.

The umbrella organization for the youth writing programs in cities across the US and brainchild of Dave Eggers among others, 826National is featured prominently in my upcoming book Rethinking Creative Writing in Higher Ed, specifically the last chapter, “Creative Writing Programs and the World,” which deals with literary citizenship. The 826 programs have been on my radar for years, but the more a learned about them in my research, the more I have come to admire all they do and stand for. Believe me, I can’t think of a better way to spend $8.26!

What are you waiting for!!  They need our money, y’all!
