In Girls Write Now’s cutting edge Digital Media Mentoring Program, girls create at the intersection of language, technology, and art. The professional women in media who serve as mentors support teens as they explore writing through video and audio production, interaction design, creative programming, animation, and more.
The QWERTY Digital Media Exhibition showcases innovative genre-and medium-bending work by New York City teens. Join us on June 2, 6-8PM at Downtown Community Television Center, 87 Lafayette St, New York, NY 10013. Jenna Wortham from New York Times Magazine will moderate a panel of professional women media-makers from Twitter, Giphy and more.
Past QWERTY keynote speakers have included Development Executive at Matter Studios, Ashley C. Ford; Executive Communications Senior Associate at Google, Kayla Conti; black feminist culture writer for Revelist, Evette Dionne; and Girls Write Now mentor and Digital Producer, Bec Susan Gill.
