The 826 Quarterly, Volume 12 by Sona Avakian


The 826 Quarterly, Volume 12 by Sona Avakian

Each volume of The 826 Quarterly 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 edition features poetry about subjects ranging from heartbreak to fantasy hats, investigative journalism about the rubbery chicken nuggets in the cafeteria, short fiction about impersonating TV personality Tony Shalhoub, and a pirate on a lifelong quest for a particularly rare fruit. All of the poems, short stories, and nonfiction pieces featured in this journal comprise both traditional and experimental writing, talking not up or down but straight across to young and old readers alike.
