VIDEO: Growing as a writer. Growing as a person.

December 19, 2023

Ten years ago, the John D. O’Bryant was the first 826 Boston Writers’ Room to open its doors—and since then, the stories that have come pouring out of this space have been magical. Watch this video of student Alyssa as she shares her journey as a writer and a leader in the John D. O’Bryant Writers’ Room.

Did you know that we hope to open a new Writers’ Room next fall at the Margarita Muñiz Academy, the state’s only bilingual Spanish/English high school? If you would like to support this new Writers’ Room and help students like Alyssa to continue finding themselves as writers and leaders, we hope you will consider making a gift to our end-of-year campaign.
