Apply to be a Mentor at Girls Write Now by July 19!

Girls Write Now is actively seeking mentors for our upcoming program year, which runs from September 2021 - June 2022! Our mentors are professional women and gender-expansive individuals working across a wide range of industries who utilize strong writing skills in their professions. Mentors work with mentees from systemically underserved communities in a structured one-to-one relationship guided by the Girls Write Now curriculum. Together, you produce original writing and/or hone college & career readiness skills with support from the Girls Write Now staff and community.

We are looking for mentors to join our two main programs: Writing 360 and Writing Works. Be a part of our community and change the trajectory of a mentee’s life and career!

Writing 360: Eager to support a young writer through creative, digital, and visual mediums? Join our holistic and multigenerational community of professional writers. Mentors work side by side with mentees to help them discover their authentic voice, while gaining exposure to a variety of written and multimedia genres in workshops taught by expert teaching artists. 

Writing Works: Mentors model for youth and early career professionals how to be creative thinkers, clear communicators, and competitive candidates for the trails they choose to blaze. Mentors prepare young people for college and career, assisting them with internship/job applications, personal statements, networking opportunities, industry exposure and more. 

Mentor Benefits: 

  • Develop a mutually beneficial one-to-one mentoring relationship with a young person!
  • Network across industries with other like-minded writers, leaders and activists
  • Have access to professional development through our workshops
  • Hone writing and editing skills and discover new applications to use in their careers
