Let’s Create Something Together!
As one mentor put it, Girls Write Now events are “the cure for writer’s block.” We offer an array of writing-centered events to our community and to the public—and even virtually, our spaces are welcoming, inspiring and empowering.
Led by women and gender-expansive teaching artists, we come together to create multi-genre, multimedia work, share perspectives, hone professional skills and support each other on the path to wellness both for ourselves and our communities. Join our mailing list to get weekly event updates!
Maya Eaglin, digital reporter for NBC News, will share information about pitching ideas, the skills employed to get a great interview, as well as the production process used to create her stories.

Dutton, Putnam, Berkley and Girls Write Now meet for an intergenerational exchange to help teen writers edit their pieces for submission to the Girls Write Now Anthology and beyond! PRH employees—“Mentors for the Day”— help mentees take their drafts to the next level. Employees will answer questions about their professional journeys then work with mentees to strengthen their pieces in small group breakout rooms. Learn how small changes can make a big difference in how your writing is received. Editing is easier...and enjoyable when you have a professional editor by your side!
