Help spread the word about US! Share workshop info with friends and parent groups; connect us with people who you think we should know (or should know US); and give us feedback on upcoming ideas and projects.

Connect Uptown Stories with Your School

We are dedicated to serving as many young writers as we can - and you can help us by making a connection between Uptown Stories and your child’s school! Invite our staff to set up a table at a fair, give a presentation at a PTA meeting, or we might even be able to offer workshops after school.

Uptown Stories Team!

We are a small but mighty team determined to change the world one student at a time. We're always looking for rock-star teaching artists, as well as seasonal interns and volunteers! Check out our open positions below.

Are You a Publishing or Media Professional? Share Your Expertise!

Send Snacks and
Art Supplies to Our Writers!

Writing is hard work, and we always need more notebooks, pencils, snacks, and more! Send our students some supplies from our Wish List so they can keep writing what’s next.
