The Middle School Advanced Writing Exploration Program (AWE) invites Writopia 7th and 8th grade writers to be part of a community of dedicated, focused writers looking to explore, expand, and deepen their literary passions. The program includes multi-genre workshops, as well as genre-specialized master class sessions. All workshops are student-driven and author-led, and writers will receive continuous feedback from their instructor and peers.
The program will inspire and challenge middle school writers, as well as prepare them for Writopia’s popular and esteemed Creative Portfolio program for high schoolers.
Advanced Writing Seminar programs are immersive two-week experiences for dedicated teen writers. While most programs have a multi-genre portfolio curriculum, some focus on a single type of writing.
Sessions are offered online, in-person at our Upper West Side and Tenleytown labs, and one special overnight session in NYC.
