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.
On June 1, The QWERTY Digital Media Exhibition showcased the innovative genre-and medium-bending work by New York City teens at the New-York Historical Society.
