826CHI's Teen Writers Studio (formerly Youth Advisory Board) invites you to celebrate their latest chapbook, "A Record in Space." Inspired by the work of Zadie Smith, John Cheever, Tavi Gevinson, Nate Marshall, and Ladan Osman, among others, the teen writers of TWS have crafted original stories exploring everything from nostalgia to war; love to space travel. 

About the 826CHI Teen Writers Studio: TWS is a group of diverse, driven, and literary-minded high school students from all over Chicago who meet bi-weekly at 826CHI over the course of an entire academic year. TWS sessions are part writing workshop and part leadership lab. TWS students give back to the citywide arts community by serving as ambassadors of 826CHI at literary events and by volunteering at 826CHI programs. The annual TWS chapbook is an anthology of original work created by students in TWS sessions throughout the school year."
