WHAM! POW! PDX Writer Daily loads up on superhero supplies

Because this blog is multi-celled, it can divide itself. And so part of PDX Writer Daily is currently in New York, having writing-related conversations with writing-related people.

Yesterday, we chatted with 826NYC, a writing center in Brooklyn. 826NYC (which is hidden in the back of the Brooklyn Superhero Supply Co.) is one of multiple 826 writing centers founded by some of the same people who brought you McSweeney's and The Believer. This blog attended a workshop at 826NYC last year, and said workshop was an excellent source of ideas and strategies for use in writing centers, and said workshop led almost immediately to our ongoing "Project of Awesomification" at the PSU Writing Center, which, like the 826 centers, is open to the public and offers a variety of programs.

If you're looking for fun and creative ideas for writing projects, you might want to check out the sites of any of the 826 centers around the country. If you require superhero supplies, though, you have to visit 826NYC in person.
