Here at Girls Write Now, we are witnessing the highest demand for our services in nearly 25 years.
We are responding by leveling enormous educational inequities and fighting against feelings of isolation through enriched programming. Support from our broader community can change the trajectory of a young writer’s life and empower the next generation of writers and leaders.

Please share your incredible stories and contributions with your friends, family and colleagues. We’d be thrilled and honored to have them join our movement.
