Girls Write Now is excited to release this year’s award-winning anthology, Voice to Voice at the Girls Write Now Awards Gala on May 19 at 6 PM at Three Sixty Tribeca. This literary celebration showcases the girls and their mentors’ best work, from poetry and fiction to screenplays and memoirs. Our girls tackle big issues, such as race relations and abuse, as well current feelings on social media, self-esteem and family dynamics. This year, author, activist, and this year’s Awards emcee, Marianne Pearl, has written a poignant foreword: “Girls Write Now gives us the chance to share these young girls’ feelings and experiences, carefully narrated from the heart, intimate enough to touch the universal. This anthology is a read for all generations, cultures and for anyone who has an interest in the future.”
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie says, “I wish for every reader who opens this book the same feeling I had when I first met Girls Write Now: inspiration.” Praise for the anthology comes from countless authors, including Emily St. John Mandel (Station Eleven), Quiara Alegría Hudes (Water by the Spoonful), Janet Mock (Redefining Realness), Andrea Davis Pinkney (The Red Pencil), Julie Salamon (Wendy and the Lost Boys), and more.
