Writopia Lab’s Week-Long Half-Day Workshops meet each week of summer, June 8th - August 28th. Workshops are offered in the morning (9:30 - 12:30) and afternoon (1:30 - 4:30), Monday through Friday, at three of our Greater Los Angeles locations:
Young writers 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. Participants choose to focus on either fiction, memoir, poetry, scripts, or journalism during a workshop, and will leave the program 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 & Noble at the end of the summer.
Workshop Cost: $560 Sliding Scale Options: $390 | $290 | $180
**Starting on May 23rd, 2015 the sliding-scale fee structure for summer workshops will be raised to $585 | $430 | $320 | $210. Confirm your summer spot with payment before May 23rd to lock in the current rate for that workshop.**
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.
