“Writing is a way to understand the world and myself. This is just the beginning.” —Massange Kamara, mentee

Unlike many larger non-profits, Girls Write Now does not have an endowment, which means we need to raise every dollar anew each year to maintain our programs and services for this deserving community.

We work on the basis of intense commitment – the girls who participate sign up for a demanding year of daily effort and constant challenge as they learn various genres of writing and a range of life skills. Girls Write Now promises an equally intensive investment, one that is highly effective and economical compared to similar services.

Show your commitment with a gift to Girls Write Now. Together we can write the future, one girl at a time.

  • 2014 Girls Write Now Awards

    On June 3rd, the second annual Girls Write Now Awards was held at the legendary Bowery Hotel. It was a night honoring Dawn L. Davis, Roberta Kaplan, and Gloria Steinem. All of these women paved the way for our girls to break through boundaries, both in life and in writing, to realize their promise and the possibilities of change. More than 200 guests joined us, and with the incredible generosity of our sponsors, guests, Board, and Host Committee, we raised $110,000 that will allow us to continue to give young women the chance to share their stories and voices. See photos, videos, and more.
