Writopia Long Island

Writopia Long Island Workshops

Our teens win more Scholastic Writing Awards each year than any other group of teens in the country.

Writopia Lab is a non-profit organization that runs year-round writing workshops for highly engaged kids and teens (ages 8-18). Workshops have a maximum of seven students, and are all led by a published author or a produced playwright. Writers who participate in our workshops read their original writing at local bookstores, see their stories published in our online literary magazines The PARENTHETICAL and the Ellipsis, and are eligible to have their work produced in Writopia’s annual Worldwide Plays Festival in New York City, sponsored by David Letterman’s production company Worldwide Pants.

Location: OMG! - 140 Jericho Turnpike, Syosset NY 11791

AllisonLiebmanBioPicAllison is thrilled to join Writopia Lab as the Long Island Workshop Coordinator and instructor. As a certified English teacher, she has been sharing her own passion for writing with her students for nearly two decades. At Plainview Old Bethpage JFK High School, her classroom was a venue for frequent writer celebrations; each class was given the opportunity to publish its own anthology of short stories, and her students were regular contributors to publications such as Merlyn’s Pen and Stone Soup. She was the adviser of the literary magazine Images, which was presented at the Columbia Writer’s Conference for several years. Many of her students also received recognition from the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. Since 2003, Allison has had the opportunity to teach writing in schools across Long Island, including Solomon Schechter and the Eton Academy in Plainview. She has remained involved with the NY City Writing Project and Long Island Language Arts Council. Allison studied English Literature at the University of North London, and at SUNY Stony Brook, where she received her B.A. in English and M.A. in Teaching English. She is excited to have the opportunity to bring Writopia to Long Island, as she continues to inspire creativity in kids and teens.
