About Girls Write Now!:
Founded in 1998, Girls Write Now Inc. (GWN) provides a safe and supportive environment where girls can expand their natural writing talents, develop independent creative voices, and build confidence in making healthy choices in school, career and life. GWN is the only East Coast nonprofit that combines mentoring and creative writing training within the context of all-girl programming. GWN provides at-risk high school girls with emerging writing talent the unique opportunity to be custom matched with a professional woman writer who serves as her individual mentor and writing coach, meeting with her weekly for one entire school year, and for up to four years. GWN also enrolls each student in a vibrant writing community and professional network — all mentees and mentors gather monthly for genre-based workshops conducted at Teachers & Writers Collaborative — the home of the oldest writers-in-the-schools program in the country — in midtown Manhattan.
