The 826 Quarterly is the outcome and chronicle of 10 years' success in grassroots education. It contains work by students aged 6 to 18 of 826 Valencia, an educational nonprofit co-founded by TED award winner Dave Eggers and educator Ninive Calegari.This is a very special issue of the826 Quarterly, a more-like-twice-yearly publication containing fiction, non-fiction, and poetry written by authors ages 6-18. This issue celebrates the 10th anniversary of 826 Valencia, an educational non-profit based in San Francisco, CA, and contains the best of the best student writing from across the last decade.
