My name is Alisha (they/them/any) and I’m a mentee at Girls Write Now. I’m into film and theater and have taken drama/theater/acting classes in middle school and high school. I have practiced playwriting and written analysis on plays like Othello (if you want I can show you what I wrote and explain the prompt). I also like to frequently analyze the shows and movies I watch, although not all of it is in writing. This is my first time dabbling in screenwriting.
One of my reasons for becoming a mentee at Girls Write Now is to practice different types of writing. Screenwriting aligns with things I’m already interested in and have already explored. I also think it’ll help me be a better writer, specifically with writing stories, which is another thing I’ve already explored. I’m just very excited to learn more in Script 360.
