“I always think of Girls Write Now as an investment in the future of American writers, and the amazing stories and poems in their Anthology prove that the future will be bright beyond our imagining.” – Tayari Jones, author and former board member
We take the strongest, boundary-pushing work each girls writes and collect it each year in our award-winning literary journal. We publish pieces from all of our mentors and mentees, showcasing the stories that surprise us and stretch our understanding of the world and ourselves.
The Girls Write Now anthology has been recognized as the Outstanding Book of the Year in the Independent Publisher Book Awards, and has earned additional honors from the International Book Awards, National Indie Excellence Awards, Next Generation Indie Book Awards, and the New York Book Festival.
Our anthologies have received praise from Gloria Steinem, Roxane Gay, Meg Wolitzer, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Christina Baker Kline, Eve Ensler, Isaac Fitzgerald, Emily St. John Mandel, Janet Mock, and countless others. Says People magazine, “It’s hard not to be inspired.”
