We invite you to join the Girls Write Now Circle, a select group of multigenerational leaders committed to amplifying diverse voices. Together we are shaping the future of women writers and gender non-conforming youth across industries.
Giving young women the ability to express themselves with clarity and force is an act of great potential social and political power. Girls Write Now harnesses that power.
