About Us

Writopia Lab is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization founded in New York City in April of 2007. We run creative writing workshops for kids ages 6 to 18. All of our workshops have a maximum of seven students and are led by a published author or produced playwright who has been fully trained in our time-tested methodology. In each of the past six years, our students have won more recognition for their writing than any other group of students in the nation. (Recent honors include: the most regional and national medals from the Scholastic Writing Awards in the nation; the nation’s top 2012 and 2013 Scholastic Awards Scholarships for Gold Medal Portfolioists; the 2012 and 2013 NYC Teen Literary Honor from New York Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg;  a 2013 YoungArts Scholar Award.)

"Writopia is the #1 writing program in the city."
