In-School and CBO Workshops
Writopia Lab partners with public schools, private schools, and community-based organizations, working closely with administrators and teachers to meet their individual needs -- from long-term after-school creative writing workshops to one-time one-hour projects.
Please contact us so we may learn about your needs, answer all of your questions, and plan an in-school program at your school together!
