Our mission is to elevate our youth’s voices onto the page in order to further Writopia Lab’s mission of fostering joy, literacy, and critical thinking in all young people through effective, passion-driven writing.
The Writopia Lab Quarterly Newspaper publishes four issues per year. Participants around the world join our workshops to brainstorm topics and receive high-level guidance from published journalists in developing feature stories, opinion pieces, profiles, news coverage, crossword puzzles, and comics. Writopia Lab reporters conduct interviews and research in order to learn and share their knowledge with the public in engaging, effective ways.
The Yearly WriCampian is a newspaper written by WriCampians every year, detailing their experiences and showcasing their pieces from our annual sleepaway camp.
