Regular price $18.00 Sale

Now available! If you were a place, what would you consist of? What’s the weather? Are you the beach or the city? Forest or suburbs? Or a different planet?

A Place Worth Being features outstanding work from more than 60 student writers grades 7-12 from across the country. An anthology of poems and essays created in partnership with Jason Reynolds, bestselling author and three-time National Ambassador for Young People's Literature, these works were inspired by his prompt of the same name featured on 826 Digital. Here, you’ll find the writers’ reflections of the worlds inside themselves—those that exist and those they imagine building.

This student-authored anthology includes the original 826 Digital Spark from Jason Reynolds to invite young writers everywhere to reflect on the worlds and places found within themselves. 

Presented by 826 National, all proceeds of this book supports free publishing opportunities and writing resources programs for young writers and educators across the country.
