Writopia in Westchester has quadrupled with the addition of our Larchmont location, hosted generously by Francine Lucidon at The Voracious Reader.
This has been a week of amazing 12-13 year olds, who type faster than I can think.

On Wednesday we were interviewed by Brian Donnelly of The Daily Larchmont, and he wrote an article called: Bookstore Lab Molds Young Readers into Writers that came out yesterday.
These tweens will finish their short stories or the first part of their novellas today, and I look forward to working with them more during the school year.
And my new wordy addiction? Move over Scrabble, Lexulous, it's time for Whirly Word! (It's on my I-phone - I am armed and dangerous!)
