Write Away Workshops

Write Away Workshops

Young writers come together in Write Away Workshops to explore a multitude of genres and subjects and to develop their voices. Groups write freely and participate in imaginative writing activities and lessons. Whether it’s a song, a piece of climate justice sci-fi, or a nature guide, young writers leave the workshop with a piece to be proud of, as well as a newfound understanding of the topic, and new friends.

It’s All Fun and Games

April 8 – May 6 • grades 1-3

Thursdays • 4:00-5:30 PM

Let’s explore storytelling in different genres with collaborative writing games! Together, we’ll play writing games and tell all kinds of stories: silly, serious, mysterious, and more. We might even mix it up: imagine a supervillain whose power is bad jokes, or a giant spaghetti monster who solves mysteries with a kitten friend! By the end of this workshop, we’ll have some short stories that will make you and everyone you know laugh, cry, and everything in between.

April 8 – May 6 • grades 4-5

Thursdays • 4:00-5:30 PM

April 5 – May 3 • grades 6-8

Mondays • 4:00-5:30 PM

People say you should write what you know and the truth is, YOU know a lot! Whether it’s the secret to the chewiest chocolate chip cookie, how to play Roblox, how to organize a neighborhood cleanup, or some other amazing skill, you know something other people would love to learn. Together we’ll explore how to share that knowledge. We’ll try our hands at how-to zines, poems, and listicles! By the end of this workshop, we will have a set of how-to guides as varied as our skills.



We prioritize students with financial need who qualify for the former free and reduced lunch program. For all other students, the workshop is $125.

This program will be virtual for the 2020-21 school year.
