FAMILY MEMOIR WORKSHOP at Writopia Lab (Dec. 27, 10 a.m. to noon). Many families preserve their memories through photos and videos, but Writopia Lab, a national organization offering creative writing programs to children and teenagers, has another suggestion: words. In this Manhattan workshop, each participating family member will write about the same shared experience, whether humorous or dramatic. Instructors will offer help, and the writers will share — without any critiques — their individual perspectives with their relatives and the group. One rule: No one can say, “That’s not how it happened!” (Registration is recommended.)

Our Mission

Writopia Lab fosters joy, literacy, and critical thinking in children and teens from all backgrounds through creative writing.

We have never turned away a student whose family was unable to pay for workshops. Fifty percent of our students attend on either partial or full scholarships.
