Writopia Lab

mission:

Writopia Lab is a not-for-profit organization that fosters joy, literacy, and critical thinking in children and teens from all backgrounds through creative writing. We do this by:

• Providing young people with the creative inspiration and intellectual environment that may not be available to them at school.
• Helping each student become comfortable with expressing himself on paper and to ultimately cultivate (or maintain) a love of writing in each of them.
• Creating and sustain a diverse community of young writers who find commonalities in a shared passion for ideas and expression.
• Offering discounted or waived fees to at least 40% of workshop participants.
• Providing an open, safe, and nurturing space for young people who are highly engaged in creative and intellectual endeavors.
• Providing an open, safe, and nurturing space for young people who struggle with verbal and written expression.
• Identifying ways that creative youth who struggle academically can use their gifts to further their academic success.
