At Girls Write Now, we use writing as a vehicle to build real relationships and offer holistic services for woman-identifying, trans* and gender-expansive young adults from systemically disadvantaged backgrounds—mentoring them throughout high school, college, career and beyond.
Our mentees are passionate dreamers and innovative thinkers who have a story to tell. Our mentors are dedicated professionals who care deeply about communication—no matter the industry they work in. Mentors and mentees hail from all five NYC boroughs, across the nation and originally from around the world.
Programs begin in September 2022 and run through June 2023. Applications are due July 11, 2022.
