Emily Rigby

Emily Rigby (she/her) comes to Girls Write Now with a love of writing, meaningful experience developing curriculum for nonprofit organizations, and a long-held belief that there is no limit to the ways that people can express their thoughts and ideas. There is nothing that sparks her interest more than a complicated, messy protagonist whose story challenges and questions the status quo – and long-form,YouTube video essays. She holds a BA in Creative Writing and Psychology from Ithaca College and an MFA in Creative Writing from The New School and is excited to share her passion for stories in all forms as a member of the Girls Write Now team.


About Intersectional Voices in Editorial Committee (IVEdit)

Are you interested in learning more about Girls Write Now Stories and our digital publication process? Intersectional Voices in Editorial (IVEdit) Committee assists with editorial, outreach, and publication of all Girls Write Now Stories, as well as envisioning how Girls Write Now can continue to be a leader in a new era of publishing. We, as editors, come from a myriad of backgrounds, we belong to many groups, and we have experienced many perspectives. We bring all of this to the work as we explore the stories created and celebrated in our community.

IVEdit will meet monthly during the 2023-2024 Girls Write Now Collaboratory. Mentors, mentees, alumni, and members of the public are welcome to attend our meetings and volunteer to help us edit our stories.

This event is open to:

all mentees, all mentors, GWN staff, program alum, the public and website editorial committee members
