If life were a straight line, it would be easy to stay on course. But life is full of twists and turns and unexpected bumps.
In YOU ARE HERE: The WriteGirl Journey, 161 women and girls share their stories as they navigate their way through small moments and big adventures. In clear and unwavering voices, they tell us about where they are, where they’ve been and where they still hope to go.
So climb in, adjust your rear view mirror, toss your GPS out the window and let this book be a passport to your own unexpected journey.
All proceeds from sales of the book go directly back to WriteGirl, helping to support creative writing and mentoring for hundreds of girls.
WriteGirl launched their newest anthology at the Los Angeles Public Library on January 11, 2014 with a public reading event and reception.
Pre-launch activities included an inspirational writing workshop led by Sholeh Wolpe, an acclaimed Iranian-American poet, literary translator, and writer. Later, Sholeh joined the authors of YOU ARE HERE as they took to the stage to share excerpts and stories from the anthology.
“WriteGirl inspires girls to explore and express, in bold terms, who they are and who they’re becoming. The result is a thrilling collection of prose and poetry that exemplifies a new generation of women,” says Jennifer Hoppe, writer and story editor, Nurse Jackie, Damages, Save Me, Us & Them.
