Making Good Trouble: Writing the 2020 Youth Declaration of Sentiments
The original Declaration of Sentiments, the document outlining the rights that American women should be entitled to as citizens, emerged from the Seneca Falls Convention in New York in July 1848. Then in 2020, a group of women and girls in the Western, Central and the Finger Lakes regions of New York got together “to use pens and voices” to write a new declaration for the 21st century, which they shared for the first time at the 2021 Convention Days in Seneca Falls, NY in mid-July.
Join us for this NWP Radio show where we hear from the authors of the now complete 2020 Youth Declaration of Sentiments, understand their journeys as writers and collaborators, and listen to their hopes and dreams for their 21st century document.

The Truth About Writing Education in America: Let’s Write, Make Things Right
Equal access to quality writing education has been a longstanding challenge in the United States and not enough has been done to move the field forward in recent years. In this report, we at 826 National aim to bring writing education to the forefront of public, policy, and funding conversations by examining its current state and issuing a call to action to the field. In the summer and fall of 2020, we interviewed 19 writing education experts, including authors, researchers, and educators, about the current state of writing education in the United States. We distill their reflections on the benefits, challenges, and inequities of writing education, and then draw on those reflections to outline recommendations for the field.
