Description

Hello!


We are WriteGirl, a creative writing and mentoring organization for teens in Los Angeles. We are seeking women and men volunteers for our upcoming season and would love for you to join us. There are two opportunities available: our Bold Ink Writers program (deadline is July 13th) and our Core Mentoring Program (deadline is August 31st).


Men and Women Writers with Daytime Availability Needed! Deadline to apply is July 13th!


Bold Ink Writers is seeking men and women with creative writing skills to lead writing workshops for teen boys and co-ed groups during the school day. The workshops help teens develop creativity and other tools they need for academic and professional success. Workshops will take place throughout Los Angeles, from alternative schools to detention camps, for teens of diverse backgrounds. Mentors provide teens with the positive transformative experience of learning the craft of writing poetry, prose, songs, blog entries and personal essays. Must have daytime/ weekday availability. We will have a training day later in July. (Bold Ink Writers is a project of WriteGirl, helping girls through creative writing and mentoring since 2001.)

Women Writers Needed for our Core Mentoring Program!


Do you love creative writing? Do you want to mentor teen girls? Are you available on a weekly and/or monthly basis? Apply today to join WriteGirl as we empower teen girls in the Los Angeles community!


WriteGirl (www.writegirl.org) is a non-profit organization specializing in creative writing and mentorships for teen girls. Each season, WriteGirl hosts at least 25 workshops at iconic landmarks around LA county, such as the Huntington Gardens, the Autry, and the Japanese American National Museum! It is thanks to wonderful volunteers and mentors that WriteGirl has guided 100% of our girls to high school graduation and college.


If you’re a woman writer of any genre (including novelists, poets, journalists, songwriters, copywriters, legal writers and more!) we need you!  


We are seeking volunteers to fill mentorship and event support positions. If you enjoy public relations and communications, WriteGirl is also seeking professional women to interact with the public, develop fundraising ideas, network with fellow writers, and reach out to local companies for donations!


Women should apply by August 31st, 2018 at www.writegirl.org/join-us. For more information, sign up for our newsletter at http://bit.ly/2tK9WUr. For questions, contact WriteGirl at membership@writegirl.org or call 213-253-2655.
