Throughout Girls Write Now’s 20th anniversary year it was a privilege to reconnect with so many of our mentor and mentee alumnae, to hear about your journeys and triumphs, and to invite you back into the community. We’ve really enjoyed discovering new ways to engage with you all this year—from internships at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt to special events like The Hate U Give screening and brunch with HBO’s 2 Dope Queens. In 2019, we are committed now more than ever to engaging and connecting our alumnae with new opportunities in college, career, and beyond.
As part of our “Writing Works” initiative, please enjoy this short, curated list of internship and job opportunities.
IMPORTANT! Mention Girls Write Now in your cover letter and let us know so we can support.
