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.


Workshops are currently full. Sign up for the waitlist here! (You’ll be notified if spots open up)

Come explore and invent the stories that explain who and why and what we are. We’ll read myths, legends, and folktales, and then create our own. We’ll write poems for the boogie man and pen parables for why the sky is blue and everything in between!

Can our imagination fuel an entire trip to other planets? Let’s find out! We’ll write stories about the creatures that could have existed in our solar system before us, and create new planets and beings in galaxies far, far away. We’ll join science and fiction in the best possible way!

Mondays • 4:00-5:30 PM

Let’s play detective and villain at the same time! We’ll learn what makes a great mystery as we write one of our own. We’ll develop compelling and eccentric characters and shape thrilling plots full of twists and turns.


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.
