Come be inspired by Shanthi Sekaran, our lauded keynote speaker, and hear the nine award recipients read their pieces.

Writopia Lab, in partnership with Litquake, invited writers between the ages of 12 to 18 to submit their fiction, memoir, or poetry for a chance to receive an award of recognition. Each award recipient will have the opportunity to be published in Writopia Lab's teen litmag The Ellipsis and to participate in a celebratory reading at Litquake’s culminating event, the Lit Crawl. The finalists will be published in The Ellipsis and be honored with a certificate at the Lit Crawl.

A broad range of voices, styles, and perspectives has beenchosen to be showcased at Lit Crawl, Litquake’s final festive night in the Mission District of San Francisco on Saturday, October 20th. Additionally, two outstanding submissions by 11th and 12th grade writers have been selected to receive a $250 scholarship.
