Program Logic Model

At Writopia Lab, youth have made social-emotional learning (SEL) gains in areas such as positive identity, academic self-efficacy, social skills, and self-management, which are directly linked to long-term positive behavior, thriving youth, improved academic performance, and improved workforce readiness.

Here is Writopia's Program Logic Model, a graphic that presents what we do, how we do it, and the short-term and long-term effects on our youth.


  • Multi-genre creative writing workshops for youth ages 4 to 18.
  • Summer full-day camp and sleepaway camp.
  • One-on-one literacy support and mentorship.
  • Literary gatherings, events for the community, and an annual professional play festival.
  • High school and college-level internships.
  • Literary magazines.

Effective Practices

  • Professional writers (instructors) provide strengths-based feedback to our youth’s writing.
  • Instructors encourage writers to choose writing projects that matter to them and set their own writing goals.
  • Instructors lead our youth through writing games that promote joy, reflection, and collaboration, and teach craft concepts on an intrinsic level.
