What They're Saying

"I came to Writopia without ever having been in a writing class outside of my school. I was scared that I would not be as good as the other members, but as soon as I stepped in I felt right at home. For the first time I was excited and passionate about my writing. Every week I was eager to learn from my friends and writing instructor how to improve my work. In the end I felt that it all paid off. Writopia gave me a chance to think about hard and personal subjects in a different way, and also gave me the chance to express myself in a free manner."

--Gabe Fisher, 8th Grade
Scholastic Regional Gold Key Winner, Memoir, 2008

Creative Writing Workshops for Kids and Teens

4 young writers

Writopia Lab is a national community of young writers, ages 6 to 18. Founded in New York City in 2007, Writopia Lab has now spread to Greater New York, Greater Washington, D.C., Chicago and Los Angeles.

Parents: At Writopia, your kids and teens enjoy individual attention, fun writing games, couches, laptops, stellar feedback from published authors trained in our method, and, best of all, the satisfaction of completing a wonderful original story.

Writers: Do you love the idea of developing a short story, sceenplay, or memoir? Are you thrilled by the idea of polishing exceptional new pieces? Or have you had less positive experiences, and would like to join a community that can change your entire feeling about writing? Our students enter at different levels...and leave with at least one piece of polished, original prose.
