Girls Write Now
Mission: Our mission is to strengthen the education, wellbeing, and development of vulnerable children, youth, and families across the New York metro area so that everyone has the support and opportunity needed to maximize their potential.
About: "Girls Write Now goes beyond just words: it sets goals and accomplishes them, it looks you in the eye and says, ‘Go ahead, we're right behind you.'" -Malya Schulman, intern
A television writer and a high school student unpack laptops at a coffee shop and debate narrative structure. A Pulitzer Prize winning journalist breaks down her technique in a loft crowded with young women. A writer finally gets the cadence of her poem just right and her heart beats a little faster with pride.
This is Girls Write Now: a community of women writers from ages 13 to 83. Together, we write the future, one girl at a time.
