About Run for Writopia 5K

For 7 years Writopia Lab has operated WriCampia, our sleepaway camp in the Poconos. Core to the mission of WriCampia is our generous scholarship program. This years 5K run proceeds will be dedicated to the WriCampia scholarship program.


Each year, families share with us that WriCampia was a transformative experience for their child. We have a few events planned this year to keep our WriCampia family connected, and to help ensure that *all* kids have the opportunity to benefit from the transformative power of a writing-focused, creative arts sleepaway camp.


RUN FOR WRITOPIA!

Come be part of the magic! We serve over 1000 children from low income families throughout the year on-site and at Title 1 schools, and strive to raise $90-$100,000 each year toward bringing our amazing community of diverse writers to Wricampia! Last year we raised $90,000— and were able to offer partial to full aid to everyone who applied! Come run or just hang out with WriCampia campers, directors, instructors, and counselors in support of Wricampia’s scholarship programs!


Riverside Park. will be the location for the event.

Why Participate?

Writopia helps young people find their voices, transform their pain into power, turn their ideas into accomplishments, and achieve their award-winning potential regardless of their economic status. At a time when teachers face pressures to teach to the test, Writopia provides a much-needed emotional, creative, and intellectual outlet for kids and teens to think, write, and process the world together in uncensored, diverse environments.

We provide continuous, ongoing support to over 1,000 low-income students in NYC each year, on a weekly basis and throughout the summer in our in-school and after school workshops, in one-on-one sessions, and at our day camps and sleepaway camps.

Our solution to the literacy crisis is deep engagement rather than rote learning, and our approach is working. Over 90% of our parents report that their children’s exposure to Writopia workshops made them happier in general, and over 70% reported that the Writopia method inspired them to become more engaged, avid readers, positively impacted their grades in school, and helped raise their ELA test scores.
