First, come hear our young writers read excerpts from their original fiction and memoir on Tuesday, March 15, from 5pm-6:15pm at the St. Agnes Library at 444 Amsterdam Avenue (between 81st and 82nd Street). All workshoppers who complete (or who have completed) an original piece of creative writing this winter during a holiday intensive or during a weekly winter workshop are invited to read a two-minute excerpt at this exciting event.
Second: a poetry reading! This event will be on Sunday, April 10th, from 2pm-3:30pm at the Charles P. Rogers show room located at 55 West 17th Street (between 5th and 6th Avenue). This reading is open to young poets beyond Writopia. Come celebrate National Poetry Month with us!
Finally, we are pleased to announce our second annual Best Playwrights' Festival! This year, the festival, sponsored by David Letterman's production company, Worldwide Pants, is also open to young playwrights beyond the Writopia community. New York City playwrights in grades 1-12 are invited to submit their plays, monologues, musicals, and screenplays to Writopia for consideration. Six plays (three from young writers, three from teen writers) will be selected to be performed by professionals at the Abingdon Theater, May 17th-21st. More information is available on our website.
