Know Your Power with Writopia Lab

Monday, June 1, 2020, 5 p.m.

In these hour-long workshops held over WebEx, published authors, poets and playwrights will guide teens ages 13 - 19 in authoring their own work of creative writing based on a social issue that they are passionate about. All workshops are multi-genre (fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and plays may be explored). Sessions are peppered with original and fun writing exercises to get the creative juices flowing and help writers to reflect on social issues impacting youth today. The workshop will end with time for writers to share their work and receive insightful feedback from both the instructor and their peers. 

This program requires advance registration. Sign up to attend a session here. Each workshop is limited to 15 participants each and spots are given on a first-come, first-serve basis. A week before the workshop, you will receive an e-mail confirming your session time and instructions on how to login and participate in the workshop. 

This event is a part of the Know Your Power Contest. DC Public Library Foundation and Pepco have teamed up with DC Public Library to host a contest for artists, writers, photographers and musicians between the ages of 13 - 19. Teens can submit creative work on a social issue through Aug. 14. Learn more and submit your creative work on the contest page.
