WriteGirl kicked off our 15th anniversary season with a record number of 108 girls in attendance at our annual journalism workshop held at Maker City LA on Nov. 14.

How exciting was the WriteGirl shout out in People Magazine? Comedian Jay Mohr and his wife, actress Nikki Cox, have collaborated on a new stand-up comedy special called *Happy. And a Lot.* From now through the end of December, they’re donating 100% of the proceeds from album sales on Mohr’s Bandcamp page to WriteGirl.

That makes us Happy. And a Lot!
