Here at Girls Write Now, we are witnessing the highest demand for our services in nearly 25 years.
Our response is to level the enormous educational inequities by equipping mentees to fight against feelings of isolation, not just overcoming, but thriving with enriched programming from high school to college to career—and throughout their lives.
To our community of mentors, mentees, alum and loyal supporters: YOU are agents to our mission! You give your time, your knowledge, your compassion. 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.
Thanks so much for everything you do for Girls Write Now! With your support, our mentees are leading the way as we drive change across industries.
If you have any further questions about how to fundraise and advocate for Girls Write Now, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

It’s the Perfect Gift!
For more than two years, our young writers have weathered an adolescence shaped by an ongoing global pandemic. But a harsh climate can also produce work of rare depth, complexity, nuance and humor. The Girls Write Now mentees in this collection have found new ways to build community and take root. This anthology is a catalog of seeds—each young writer cultivating a shimmering, emergent voice. In short stories, personal essays, poetry, and more, they reflect on life-altering topics like heartbreak, self-care and friendship. The result is a stunning book with global relevance of all this generation has endured and transformed.
