Applications are open! Now is the time to apply to be a Girls Write Now mentor or mentee for the September 2016-June 2017 program year.
Girls Write Now is a community of intergenerational women writers and media makers who are all connected by the shared interest of writing and storytelling. In our Digital Media & Mentoring Program mentors and mentees combine storytelling with 21st century skills, learning both new writing and digital skills such as website creation, podcast production, and digital mapping. We also offer a Writing & Mentoring Program where our mentors and mentees explore new trends in writing and identify their voices as authors. Together women learn and grow from through weekly pair sessions and monthly workshops.
If you’re more of a blogger than a diary keeper, check out our annual QWERTY Digital Exhibition to see what it means to be in our digital program. If you’re a blossoming novelist and character-creator, please join us at our annual CHAPTERS Reading Series to see current Writing & Mentoring Program mentees perform the pieces they wrote this year!
Check us out on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to see the community in action.
Apply by June 1 to be a mentor or mentee and start your next chapter. We will be reviewing applications on a rolling basis, so submit early!
