Student Work

The best part of 826 Seattle? Why, reading the awesome work of our students or listening to them perform or read a piece, of course. Here we feature the writings of young people in many different genres. We encourage you to check back often since our student writers are always busy adding new material. And, if you want to hold one of our publishing projects in your hands, they are now on sale in our store, the Greenwood Space Travel Supply Company.
