Open Mic at Housing Works Book Store!

Writopia had the honor of co-hosting an open mic with the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards on Wednesday, November 19th, last week! All those submitting to the 2009 Scholastic Awards were invited to read.

Kudos to Sarah Dash, 14, Louis Evans, 17, Milana Meytes, 16, Angelica Modabber, 14, Ena Selmonivic, 13, Rebecca Shubert, 15, Olivia Stein, 11, Victoria Testa, 12, and Barbara, 17, Ian, 17, and others for sharing their prose, poetry, memoir, and journalism with the larger community of NYC teen writers!

Thank you Alex Tapnio, Senior Manager, and Scott Larner, Coordinator, of National Programs at Scholastic for answering the writers' questions about the submissions/judging process.

We are looking forward to planning more community events with Scholastic in the future!
