The “Write” Stuff at the National Archives

The “Write” Stuff writing and research festival is back for its third year at the National Archives in Washington, DC. On Saturday June 1st, 2019, aspiring young authors and illustrators (and their families!) are invited to spend the day learning how to find the “write” stuff to tell their stories!

This event brings acclaimed authors Debbie Levy (I Dissent: Ruth Bader Ginsburg Makes Her Mark, Soldier Song: A True Story of the Civil War, and This Promise of Change: One Girl’s Story in the Fight for School Equality), L.M. Elliott (Hamilton and Peggy: A Revolutionary Friendship and Suspect Red), Pamela M. Tuck (As Fast As Words Could Fly), and illustrator Christopher Eliopoulos (for Marvel Comics and the Ordinary People Change the World series) to share their work and research processes with attendees.

From 11:00 AM-12:30 PM join us in the McGowan Theater (or online on YouTube and Facebook Live) for a conversation with all four authors, followed by a Q&A session with the audience. Moderated by Zachary Clark of 826DC, this dialogue will focus on writing, illustration, research, inspiration, and much more — you won’t want to miss it!

From 1:30-4:00 PM the program moves to the Boeing Learning Center with activities for the whole family. Highlights of the afternoon activities include:

  • Meeting one-on-one with award-winning authors
  • Discovering how research can impact stories
  • Enjoying hands-on activities for all ages
  • Exploring authors’ work and getting your copies signed
  • Participating in author spotlight sessions
