Second-year mentee Kirstie reflects on Girls Write Now’s 2013 Mentoring Program Orientation.
Rows of white chairs
Bagels and juice
Girls from all walks of life buzzing, catching up
New mentors and mentees taking everything in
Old mentees and mentors reuniting
What is something you want people to know yourself?
How do you want to breakthrough this year?
Meet new faces
What punctuation mark are you?
What does your fifteen minutes of fame look like?
You’re on an island, three books, three people, who are they?
Arts and Crafts about how, this year, we each want to break through
Mobiles that will fly from the ceiling for the whole of this year
Smiles and hugs and kisses and we are all eager for what will happen
We wrap up, but we know it’s only the beginning.
