Girls Write Now is New York’s first organization with a writing and mentoring model for girls. We are a community of professional writers dedicated to providing opportunities for underserved high school girls to develop their independent voices and write their way to a better future. Our girls are 90% high need, 90% girls of color, and 20% immigrant. For 16 years, our program has broken through the barriers of gender, race, and poverty, transforming the lives of nearly 5,000 girls, and sending 100% of our seniors on to college with portfolios, scholarships, and a new sense of confidence. Our girls have won hundreds of Scholastic Art & Writing Awards, published their work in our award-winning anthologies, and performed at readings from Lincoln Center to the White House to The United Nations this fall. Girls Write Now has been distinguished by the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities as one of the nation’s top after school programs, and was just named a Semifinalist for the New York Community Trust 2014 Nonprofit Excellence Awards.
