Summer Creative Writing Workshops for Kids and Teens at Mindful Hands
Writopia Lab is an award-winning non-profit organization that holds creative writing workshops for kids and teens.
Week-long summer workshops meet daily, Monday - Friday, for 3 hours a day. Each workshop enrolls a maximum of six participants and is led by a published writer and experienced teacher. The workshops, organized by age group, are peppered with original and fun writing exercises, but our primary goal is to help writers pursue their own writing interests and to *complete* excellent pieces.
Each participant leaves the workshop with at least one polished piece of original writing. All participants are invited to read their work at a local bookstore and to be published in our online magazine. For the last three years, Writopia Lab writers have won more Scholastic Writing Awards than any other group of kids in the country.
