When I was little, I wrote one story after another. However, I did not have classes in school that would help me improve my skills. Then everything started when I joined Girls Write Now in 10th grade. Not only did I gain useful critic from my mentors over the last three years, I've also gained a family of strong girls and women who would listen to whatever problems I had. If not for Girls Write Now, I would not have had the chance to gain recognition in contests like the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards either. This is an awesome program that have strongly supported me in doing what I've always wanted, and it is still continuing to do so for many other girls. My time spent in this program will never be forgotten.

Girls Write Now has given me the opportunity to work with young ladies who have an expressed interest in writing. Their enthusiasm and passion for the written word has reinvigorated my own love of text and prose, what power it holds and effect it has on people. Watching these young ladies grow and develop of one or more school years is exciting and rewarding to me personally, and I believe for our extended community as well.

The Great!

I jumped at the chance to be part of this organization as soon as I discovered it, and it has far exceeded my expectations. There is no other organization that does what Girls Write Now does: creates a community based on a shared love of writing between established, adult women and teenage girls who don't have many other outlets. In my years as a mentor, I've watched girls blossom as a result of the professional yet candid and friendly relationships we form; & I've seen girls produce creative works that rival many published pieces. Girls Write Now started as a brilliant, one-of-a-kind idea, and it's been executed so well it's now a part of the fabric of New York City.

I was lucky enough to attend the spring reading of Girls Write Now at the New School this year and was just beyond blown away by this program: The passion the mentors demonstrated with their young women the work produced by these very young, but obviously enormously talented, remarkable women. All I could think was, if only every girl had access to a program like this, the world would a completely different place full of powerful articulate fearless women like the girls from Girls Write Now. Rock on!

GirlsWriteNow is one of those extraordinary organizations that truly transforms the lives of the inner city girls it serves. As an Advisory Board member for the past year, I have witnessed the vibrant dedication of a network of professional women building bridges for promising girls all the way to college and beyond. Public multimedia events hosted by GirlsWriteNow always inspire girls, their families, and professionals in the fields of wordsmithing. The small hardworking staff provides for girls far past the 9-5.
