Help Us Write the Next Chapter!

We’re writing the next chapter of our organization, and we need your help.
Our Pay-What-You-Can tuition model ensures that every child who wants to join the Uptown Stories community can do so. However, in order to continue offering this opportunity to every child, we rely on you, our donors.

Every dollar you give to Uptown Stories goes toward the tuition of a young writer in one of our many workshops.
We’re writing the next chapter. Will you join us?

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.
