On Wednesday, August 4 Girls Write Now joined the employees of Marvel for networking and professional development through Girls Write Now’s college and career readiness program, Writing Works, giving young women and gender-expansive youth access and exposure to industries in need of their talents.
At this workshop, Marvel and Girls Write Now met for an intergenerational exchange to help teen writers immerse themselves in the Marvel Universe and create their very own superhero podcast. Marvel employees—Mentors for the Day—answered questions about their professional journeys and gave audio storytelling tips, including personalized feedback on mentees’ stories. Mentees learned about the vast world of podcasting and the entertainment industry with lessons from Marvel’s Director of Content, Director of Audio, Website Editor, and Audio Producer; then mentees created their own superheroes with incredible stories we’ll surely see in the superhero universe soon!
