Our Mission

Uptown Stories inspires kids to discover and develop their inner voices in a diverse community of writers.

Based in upper Manhattan, we offer small-group writing workshops for children ages eight to eighteen, led by master teachers and professional authors. To ensure our workshops are accessible to all children, tuition is pay-what-you-can. Uptown Stories creates an exciting, challenging, and supportive community in which young authors thrive.
