Love Stories by Rachel Berger
An 18-year old Writopia playwright performs her own original, spoken-word monologue about her first kiss, her family history borne of Romanticism and Latin poetry, her identity as a lesbian in a world of heteronormative love stories, and the allure of true love.
"Writopia Lab" is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in New York City in April of 2007. We run creative writing workshops for kids ages 8 to 18. All of our workshops have a maximum of six students and are led by a published writer who has been fully trained in our time-tested methodology. In each of the past three years, more kids from Writopia Lab have been recognized on both the regional and national levels by the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards than from any other school in the nation.
--The environment they create for these young writers is open, safe, and nurturing. And it works!
