Full-Day Camps

Tenleytown (NW DC)

Suite 308
Washington, DC 20016

Writopia Lab’s full-day camp meets during four weeks of July. Campers have the option of signing up for one or any of the four week-long sessions. Campers have the option of signing up for one or any of the three week-long sessions. Full-day camps are open to writers ages 6 - 18.

Each day begins with a three-hour Writopia writing intensive, where 6 to 8 campers in age-specific groups will work with a published author or produced playwright on their original pieces. Campers choose to focus on either fiction, memoir, poetry, scripts, or journalism during a workshop, and will leave the camp with a finished piece.

In the afternoon, campers choose from a variety of electives, including options such as poetry in the park, playwriting and performance, outdoor fiction games, etc.

All writers who complete original creative work will be invited to publish their pieces on our online magazine, The Parenthetical, and to participate in a public reading at Barnes and Noble at the end of the summer.
