Writopia Lab is a national community of young writers, ages 6 to 18. Founded in New York City in 2007, Writopia Lab has now spread to Greater New York, Greater Washington, D.C., Chicago and Los Angeles. In Los Angeles, it has held writing camps and classes in Santa Monica, Encino, Silver Lake, Mid City and now in Culver City at The Exploratory. 

My son - Hudson took a week of half day writing camp and loved it. He went in very reluctant thinking of himself as "not good in writing". Within a day, his teacher Jesse had him smiling and thinking about his story beyond the class. She has an infectious excitement about writing that the kids just can't help but catch and run with. 

So, I invited Writopia to bring their classes to The Exploratory. We have plans for combining forces in the future to offer writing classes in conjunction with stop motion animation, popup books with electronics and so much more. 

Here is their class schedule. You can get more information including fees etc and register on their website - http://www.writopialab.org/writopia-los-angeles.html
