The class is being sponsored by 826Seattle. What you ask is 826Seattle ??  Well I'm glad that you asked -they are a fabulous-incredible organization for children. Their website says it all : " 826 Seattle is a nonprofit writing and tutoring center dedicated to helping youth, ages six to 18, improve their creative and expository writing skills, and to helping teachers inspire their students to write. Our services are structured around our belief that great leaps in learning can happen with one-on-one attention and that strong writing skills are fundamental to future success."

I just stumbled on this place through aimless blog wandering late yesterday and enrolled immediately. If you are reading this today you still have time to PURCHASE TICKETS HERE and take a look at the upcoming class schedule .
