Girls Write Now does an incredible job of empowering young women to develop their writing skills, use their authentic voices, and record their real experiences. And it's not just the young women that are inspired and strengthened--it's also the mentors. Professional writers who work with these inspiring NYC girls are re-invigorated in their own work. The Girls Write Now community is boisterous, productive, loving, and fierce.

The committment and energy that the mentees, the mentors, and the volunteers (not to mention the completely dedicate staff) put in to this organization seems endless. I have been a volunteer for two years, and I've met phenomenal writers with voices that sing! It is a well organized and run group with love and dedication at the center of all that is done together as a community!

The Great!

What an outstanding organization! I attended some readings and have contributed financially because my daughter is a mentor. I was so moved by what I saw and heard at last year's Winter Reading, and my daughter's mentee is such an amazing young woman.

The Great!

I can't say enough about how much Girls Write Now meant to me. I learned so much about myself as a writer and a person. I gained so much confidence in my writing ability and I found a great friend in my mentor. I am still in contact with her now and consider her one of my best friends. At Girls Write Now we have the opportunity to meet women in many different areas of writing such as novelists, journalists , playwrights and songwriters. It was a great experience that led me to choose writing as my major in college. I love Girls Write Now very much.

Meeting other people who loved writing as much as I did. The other girls in the program inspired me to continue working on my writing. I also enjoyed the workshops we had and finding a new best friend in my mentor.

Encouraging and helpful. Without them I couldn't have done and experienced the things I did in this program.

I absolutely loved this program. Writing is one of my passions and this program has given me the opportunity to share my passion with people who were also in love with writing. The class was invigorating and fun. I loved the way that fun and learning were intertwined.

From the first day of orientation to the last reading, I've been impressed by not only the quality of the writing in this group of inspiring young women and mentors, but by the quality of the people. The sense of support extends beyond the mentor/mentee duos and into the group as a whole; I've made several new friends among the volunteers, and, as with any well-run organization, gotten just as much back from my participation as I've gotten (if not more so).

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my weekly meetings with my mentee, as well as the monthly workshops attended by the entire group of mentor/mentee pairs.

I am very pleased to be associated with GWN because of the awesome work they do. Their accomplishments and value to society is evident in the quality of young girls that participate and graduate the program. When I first came across the organization, I was impressed by their noble cause and creative (and effective) methods but their true impact was impressed upon me at the first Reading I volunteered at in the Spring. I was completely blown away by the confidence and talent that the organization had helped to bring to the surface in the diverse readers. I was equally amazed at the synergy between the mentors/mentees despite their vast differences. Keep on keeping on, GWN!

I was introduced to Girls Write Now this summer through their college essay writing workshops. It was a great and insightful experience. It gave me a good start for this year which is my senior year. The staff was great and they provided me with wonderful writing tools and strategies for writing a college essay. I hope to have another opportunity to work with Girls Write Now. It is a great program. Shanice Pressley

I was introduced to Girls Write Now this spring. This became a chosen topic for a Making A Difference featured story, on NBC's Nightly News, with Brian Williams. The organzation is one of the best run programmes I have seen, for mentees to learn creative writing. By virtue of it's structure and focus, it creates an environment of caring and willingness to teach and inspire young women. With their positive approach, not only so the women learn, but they gain self confidence. Girls Write Now has a diverse group of mentors, from authors, to screenplay writers and professionals in the writing field. They provide the tools and share the wealth of knowledge for young women to grow and learn in a safe environment. The younger mentees are the next generation and Girls Write Now encourages then to follow their dreams.

The Great!

I am going to volunteer with the organization in a role yet to be determined. More than likely it will be in the form of writing, either a grant, or donating time to help Girls Write Now.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The warmth and generosity of the mentors. The enthusiasm the mentees have about learning to write creatively. The cohesive management team, with unified goals and mission. The amount of volunteers that are willing to give up their time to help GWN

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

The Director of Girls Write Now. Mentors; Programme Director; Grants and administration staff.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Provide more opportunities with a larger facility; which would in turn, enable them to recruit more mentors and mentees. Expand GWN to other towns; cities in the U.S. Advertise and spread the word.
