Description

Girls Write Now (GWN) is New York's premier creative writing and mentoring non-profit organization, matching bright, creative teenage girls from the city's public high schools with professional women writers. Through weekly one-to-one mentoring, monthly group genre-based workshops, quarterly public readings, college preparation, and countless opportunities for scholarship and publication, our mission is to provide a safe and supportive environment where girls can develop their creative, independent voices, explore careers in professional writing, and learn how to make healthy choices in school, career, and life. For the past five seasons, 100% of our seniors have been accepted into college, many with significant scholarships. In November 2009, Girls Write Now received the Coming Up Taller Award, distinguishing us as one of the top 15 after-school programs in the country by the President's Committee on the Arts and the Humanities, and we were invited back to the White House in May 2011 for a celebration of American poetry and prose.

For the last three years, Girls Write Now has been honored by the Union Square Awards for creating educational opportunities, building community, and promoting progressive social change. In April 2009, we were featured on NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams as part of the "Making a Difference" series, and we have been profiled in The New York Times.
