Launching this year, our Publishing 360 program further emphasizes creative collaboration through editorial experience & takes multimedia production skills to the next level.
Where Community & Creativity Align
The Publishing 360 Program is an advanced program modeled after our flagship program Writing 360. The Program provides youth with exposure to new genres and media that are fun and dynamic and—as the world gets more and more digital— beneficial to include in their applications and resumes.
Like all programs at Girls Write Now, Publishing 360 starts with their writing, but it also allows them to explore more deeply areas like audio and visual storytelling where their work will be featured on our website and in a digital exhibition. The mentors and mentees in this program will have a voice and a say in telling the collective stories by engaging directly with the editorial side of the website—editing, and also curating, branding and beyond.
Real-World Publishing Experience
Pairs in the Publishing 360 program will:
- Dive deeper into visual and audio production skills at monthly workshops led by expert teaching artists & take your writing to the next level
- Learn the ins and outs of digital publishing as members of Girls Write Now’s Website Editorial Team—from idea generation to editing to branding, packaging & promoting both your own work and the work of your peers
- Dream up a multimedia project that tells a story only they can—like a podcast series, short film, scripted pilot, digital zine or interactive data story—and get the technical support needed to make it a reality
Support for the Whole Writer
Publishing 360 means caring for the whole writer and real relationships. The dedicated Girls Write Now team—including the mental health professionals who serve as Wellness Advisors—take this seriously with wraparound services and customized support for each mentor, mentee, and pair, day in and day out, with a passionate community backing them up and extending their reach.
