Thank you to the mentees and mentors for participating in this awesome program and making this mini-universe real. It sounds like a fantasy, too good for this world. A place where women and girls meet to write and discuss writing. Incredible. —ILANA GLAZER, Co-creator & Co-star, Broad City, and winner of the Girls Write Now 2017 Groundbreaker Award
You just made history. Our Fifth Annual Girls Write Now Awards broke records with five incredible honorees and a sold out space.

Because of you — and hundreds of our supporters — we are successfully mentoring the next generation of women writers. And this benefits us all. Thank you.
