Writopia Lab Manhattan Quick Facts

pizzapartyghostteensMediumAt the beginning of a workshop, each student chooses to write in the genre of his or her choice for the week (i.e. humor, realistic fiction, science fiction, fantasy, memoir, poetry, scripts, or journalism). Teens usually focus on completing one piece over the week; our younger writers sometimes write several stories. Our Manhattan fall, winter, and spring workshops meet weekly for 10 1.5 hour after school or weekend sessions. Summer writing workshops and holiday intensives meet five days in a row for three-hour sessions. Enrollment is ongoing. See the Price Menu, and Register in order to sign up for workshops! Or arrange to have us lead a 10-week in-school creative writing seminar at your school.
