Creative Writing Workshop

Click here to see Creative Writing workshops on the schedule!

In Creative Writing workshops, kids and teens are given the space to work on and share their writing with a group of peers and an instructor—a published author or produced playwright. In this multi-genre workshop, writers may find themselves drawn to any number of forms and genres, including fiction, personal narrative/memoir, playwriting, and screenwriting. We challenge writers to set and achieve their own writing goals, and all writers are encouraged to complete at least one well-developed, polished piece of writing over the course of their workshop. Workshops also include fun, productive writing games that help writers develop their craft, explore new genres, and better understand their characters and narratives.

Through our innovative workshop method, we empower kids and teens as peer leaders as they gain skills in writing, editing, analysis, and effective communication. Writopia Lab has established a community where young writers can find each other, connect via their literary passions, and have lots of fun!

Our Workshops are:

  • fun, engaging, and highly productive;
  • student-centered and author-led; and
  • supportive, safe spaces where writers learn how to give and receive insightful feedback.

Workshops run weekly during the school year, as week-long half-day workshops,  and as week-long full-day camps. Private sessions are also available for students to receive one-on-one instruction.

Testimonials from Parents and Guardians 

"I wanted to take the time to express my deepest gratitude for the phenomenal programs that Writopia uses to help shape our children. My gratitude not only comes from the quality of the programming but the absolute clarity that they are lead with the hearts and souls of change makers. As a single mom who is currently unemployed I could never imagine being able to afford to give this gift to my children. The fact that I do not have to worry about my children missing out on this priceless experience because of my inability to pay at this time, leaves me in awe. There are only a finite number of programs, organizations, or experiences on the same tier as Writopia that are completely committed to leveling the playing field. Thank you!" Sharnickqua Wright, Writopia Parent
“Thank you so very much for this helpful feedback on my daughter and her writing progress. She has really enjoyed her Saturday morning workshops, and we feel the class has been wonderful for her. You have a fantastic organization, and we’re thrilled we found you! My daughter will take this feedback and grow from it.” Writopia parent, 2021
“My son’s instructor perfectly understands his strengths and weaknesses. Indeed, they work amazingly together: she is helping Markian blend in with the other classmates, build his confidence in expressing his thoughts from a structural standpoint and encouraging him to productively put ideas on paper line after line. Everyone is enjoying this class and the time just flies by… Thank you!” Lilya
