As we count down the last 15 days of our Holiday Appeal, we’re giving you 15 reasons — one per day — why we’ve been the premier writing organization for New York City’s underserved teen girls for 15 years.
Mentoring the next generation of writers means mentoring them to write in the digital age.
“If I had the knowledge, skill, and money to use all the tools in the world, I would start digitally remixing all my short stories and poems… It would also be great if I could animate one of Edgar Allan Poe’s works such as the ‘The Tell Tale Heart’ or ‘The Raven.’” — Monica Chin, mentee
With our new digital media program, we’ve remixed poems and stories using photo, video, and animation; we’ve designed games around our own characters, settings, and plots — and we’re gearing up for more! Check it out and get into the digital era with Girls Write Now.
Girls Write Now’s digital initiatives are supported by the MacArthur Foundation-funded Hive Digital Media Learning Fund in the New York Community Trust and the Edmund de Rothschild Foundations.
