Girls Write Now, Inc.
September 1, 2009

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!
