At Girls Write Now, Writing Works means growing a technology and writing talent pipeline for the next generation of women leaders, directing them to the schools and industries that need them most. We offer enhanced professional development for current mentees and mentee alumnae using mentorship and a skill-based curriculum that prepares young women to enter college and the workforce with competitive and strategic communication skills, to build their resume and portfolio, with an eye on personal branding, and to engage in interviews effectively. Services include: multi-genre workshop series; one-to-one yearlong mentorships; public performance, publication, editorial, and leadership experience; professional development workshop series including college essay, resume and cover letter writing, interviewing and office etiquette; expert one-to-one and informational resources; onsite industry exposure and one-of-a-kind career fairs; plus an internship program including corporate placements and coaching.
