Writopia Lab (www.WritopiaLab.org) is an award-winning non-profit organization that holds creative writing workshops for kids and teens ages 8-18.

This summer, we are offering special week-long intensive workshops for high school students who are writing personal essays for scholarships and/or college admissions.

HOW WE WORK:

* Workshops meet daily Monday-Friday for 3-hour afternoon or evening sessions.
* Each workshop enrolls a maximum of 6 participants and is led by a published writer and experienced high school or college writing teacher.
* Students should bring any essay prompts they have been given, and/or we can provide prompts that would suit most applications.
* Through a fun, collaborative workshop format, we will help students:
- brainstorm,
- plan,
- draft,
- revise, and
- polish their essays.
* Students will leave with pieces they are proud of and excited to submit!

Students will also be invited to submit their work to our online magazine and to read at Barnes and Noble in September.
