Calling all young authors! Hone your writing and research skills with the educators from the award-winning Writopia Lab during this special workshop celebrating Martin Luther King Jr. Day! Explore the stories of unsung heroes from the Civil Rights Movement by investigating Civil Rights-era documents and artifacts from New York Historical's collection. Then, ask questions and interact with sources before translating stories to the stage in the form of a monologue or short play. At the end of the workshop, writers can submit their work to Writopia Lab's off-Broadway Worldwide Plays Festival! Ages 12 and up
