Synopsis

826 Quarterly by Jon Carroll

The 826 Quarterly is the finest in student writing from the acclaimed San Francisco literary school. Each volume features cutting-edge writing by students in the 826 Valencia workshops, as well as budding talents from California and beyond. Printed in a hip pocket-friendly size, this volume features an article on the history of Disco Rap, a list about the wonders of the cosmos, and a short story about a Spokane Indian Reservation. It also includes poetry on Mexican wrestling, a 50 pound weight, riding a bicycle, a dog-bee, the scariest monster ever, a girl who is crushed by a tree, Jack the bird, echoes bouncing eerily off walls, a mighty hand, synthetic things, how to walk, an untitled dream, a fat goldfish, the dead of night, and making the best of our climate. And that is just a small fraction of the amazing work to be found inside! These poems, short stories, and nonfiction pieces, comprising both traditional and experimental writing, talk not up or down but straight across to young readers.
