We are The Young Writers’ Lab, a Toronto-based community of young writers, thinkers and creators ages 7-19. We offer creative writing workshops, essay workshops, book clubs, literary events, private tutoring and other programs for kids and teens.

We give young writers the support and space they need to develop their ideas, their dreams and their stories. While putting pen to paper (or finger to keyboard) is undoubtedly a solitary activity, we believe writers thrive in a collaborative community. There are no exams or grades or deadlines here: only creative writing.┬áThe skills our students build in workshop–not just their writing skills but creativity, confidence, critical thinking, and collaboration–help them succeed in the classroom today and in the workforce tomorrow.

Want to take your work to the next level? Join one of our upcoming winter workshops!
