Letters With Young Writers & WarnerMedia
December 4 – 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm
WarnerMedia and Girls Write Now meet for an intergenerational exchange during this time of global crisis and cultural upheaval. Led by Girls Write Now, Mentees will have a unique opportunity to see behind the scenes of a major Mass Media and Entertainment company (HBO, DC Comics, Cartoon Network, CNN and more!), talk directly with talented professionals in the industry about career paths, and share their feelings, perspectives, and ideas in the form of letters to WarnerMedia employees. Meanwhile, WarnerMedia employees—“Mentors for the Day”—will learn about the concerns of diverse New York City youth in the midst of COVID-19 and a growing movement for racial justice, share their professional journeys and career advice, answer mentees’ burning questions, then write letters to help support them through this unusual and anxiety-producing season.
