Creating Space: Writing on the Internet

Editorial Forums

Thursday, Nov. 3
6-7 PM ET

online event; open to all mentees, mentors, program alumni, & Diversity Committee members

What does it mean to be a writer on the internet? Sharing our work online allows for anyone in the world to access our ideas and creations. On the one hand, that’s an incredible opportunity to see and be seen by others who will uplift and support our work. On the other hand, it can be terrifying to make ourselves vulnerable and share our work with those who may not receive it the way that we hope.

In this Editorial Forum, we’ll discuss how we can create a safe space for creativity at Girls Write Now and what we think it will look like to be a writer on the internet in the future.
