Attention all 6-9 year olds! (Actually, attention to all parents of 6-9 year olds, since I doubt many 6-9 year olds are reading this blog...)
I will be teaching a free children's writing workshop, Coming To Your Senses, at 826LA in Venice this Saturday afternoon, from 12-2. 826LA is a wonderful community writing center, sister to 826 Valencia in San Francisco, and other 826s rising up around the country.
Several 826 volunteers have traveled to Houston to provide Katrina evacuees with paper, pencils, art supplies, and other outlets for creative expression. You can read their dispatches here.
