Scholastic Awards Deadline Moved to December 18th, 2009

In previous years, our writers had until early January to submit their pieces. This year, the deadline has been moved forward a few weeks, meaning that you'll have to finish your pieces before winter break.

Writopia teachers are committed to working with all passionate Writopia writers. (Writers must be in 7th-12th grades to submit.) Please e-mail me to set up private sessions as soon as possible! During these sessions, a teacher will read through the writer's pieces, ask questions, offer feedback, make sure the pieces are prepared according to Scholastic's guidelines, and walk the writer through the submissions process.

Fall Workshoppers: These sessions are included in the fall workshopping fee.

Writopia Community: We ask for $95 per hour for these sessions. However, honor-based sliding scale fee options and full scholarships are available as usual.

Writopia Lab is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that operates with limited resources, relying heavily on support from the community to sustain our programs. The fee applied to this session can be claimed as a donation on your taxes. Our nonprofit tax ID number is 26-0835350.

Last year 86 Writopia students submitted over 125 pieces, and this year we have almost three times as many young writers, so don't wait until December to set up an appointment!
