Workshop Schedules


Writopia Lab’s half-day camps meet every week of the summer, June 9th - August 22nd.  Workshops are offered either in the morning (9:30 - 12:30) or afternoon (1:30 - 4:30) at all three of our Greater Washington locations. 

Campers may register for multiple weeks throughout the summer, either to offer extended time for one large project or to complete multiple projects. 

Within these three-hour writing intensives, 3 - 6 young writers will work with a published author 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. 

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. 

Workshop Cost: Workshop Cost: $560
Sliding Scale Options: $390 | $290 | $180

We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and operate on an honor-based sliding scale tuition system in order to make our programs accessible to as many young writers as possible, regardless of ability to pay.  Learn more about our sliding scale policy here.
