It's hard to believe that the school year has begun! We can hold on to a bit of summer, though, by attending Writopia's first summer celebration this week on Thursday, September 16th from 4:30 PM - 6 PM at Barnes & Noble at Lincoln Center. Summer writers will share three-minute excerpts from their completed pieces. Please join us!

Then, on September 26th, Writopia is holding a free workshop in the Chelsea for students who would like to Submit to the 2011 Scholastic Writing Awards. This competition is the country's most prestigious (and positive) writing competition for students ages 12-18. Writopia's teachers won Scholastic's 2008 and 2009 Gold Apple Teacher Award for "submitting the most outstanding group of submissions."

This event will be held at Charles P. Rogers show room at 55 West 17 Street, between 5-6 Avenues on Sunday September 26th, from 1pm-4pm. To register for this event, please have students email or call Lena at 212-222-4088. Space is limited.

Authors/Teachers from Writopia will lead small writing workshops and will walk the students through the submissions process from beginning to end. Please post and disseminate the flier as you see fit!

Please feel free to call me at 212-222-4088 with any questions.

And here is the rest of it.
