What a wonderful ten days it has been! New short stories and memoir have been imagined, remembered, put down on paper, pored over... Plays have been constructed and reconstructed as we prepare for staged, theatrical readings... And an array of thoughtful, profound, edgy, forward-looking, and most importantly, distinct personalities and ideas have been emerging each day from the blog. In fact, the first thing I do when I wake up is check to see who has written what on the blog. And I am not the only one! Each day we are getting about a dozen more hits than the previous day! Yay Writopia Lab's Teen & Tween Writers!!!!
Some news: Email Dan (Dan@WritopiaLab.org) if you want to see "Voices in Conflict," a well-reviewed play about Iraq written and performed by teens. We are going together next week. (We have free tickets!)
Also, it is official, we will be having a reading in September at Barnes & Noble at which all of our summer participants will be reading the work that emerged from the summer workshops!
Lastly, for all workshop participants and bloggers: Dan and I are planning a cooking party for sometime in July. Wanna come?
