Apply for a Workshop

The Summer Lab

The Summer Lab is a free, 4-week writing and filmmaking intensive workshop for teens ages 13-16.

Summer Lab students work with a writing mentor to create original spoken-word poetry and then turn their poems into original short films.

During the course of four intense, exciting weeks, you will have the opportunity to explore the worlds of poetry/spoken word, video production and editing. Combining these elements, the final product will be unique to your own voice and vision – this is your chance to experiment and think outside the box!


The Summer Lab is open to teens in grades 8th-10th. No filmmaking experience is required.

Classes Meet

Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 10am-4pm.


Application Deadline: The Application Period for Summer Lab is NOW OPEN.
