THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING WRITEGIRL!
On December 2nd, a blue-skied and bracingly chilly Sunday, WriteGirl mentors and mentees traveled from all over LA to participate in the 2018 Fiction Writing Workshop at the Autry Museum of the American West.
The Huntington Gardens was teeming with more than 230 women writers and teen girls at the WriteGirl Season 18 Mentee Welcome Day on Saturday, November 10. The day included writing activities, mentor and mentee matching, and opportunities to find inspiration in the gardens and museums.
Nearly 300 people were in attendance at WriteGirl’s 17th annual Season-End Celebration. This year’s theme, Girls Rise Up, highlighted the continuous accomplishments and strength of WriteGirl’s teens through creative writing.
Guided by WriteGirl mentors and acclaimed women singer-songwriters, WriteGirl teens learned the tenets of songwriting and gained inspiration for their lyrics in the gardens and art galleries of The Huntington on March 3, 2018.
WriteGirl and longtime volunteer Clare Sera are proud to be 2017 Halo Award recipients!
The WriteGirl community will greatly miss longtime WriteGirl volunteer Susan Zeidler, who passed away in late September. We will always remember her enthusiasm, sense of humor and ability to light up a room.
One hundred women writers have stepped forward to volunteer with WriteGirl for our upcoming 17th season of creative writing programs for teen girls. Women writers from poets to bloggers began their WriteGirl journey this month. They spent a full day with WriteGirl leaders, learning about the teenage brain, the WriteGirl feedback model and some of the magic elements that make WriteGirl work. Now in her eighth season with WriteGirl, Curriculum Manager Kirsten Giles made the day challenging and entertaining.
We had a spectacular Advertising, Advocacy & Blogging Workshop on March 11th at the LA offices of ad agency 72andSunny! Thank you to the women writers at 72andSunny who volunteered their time to teach our girls about advocacy messaging! Thanks to all of our WriteGirl mentees for boldly sharing your voices! And thanks to Rubio's for a fantastic lunch! We hope you love these photos as much as we do!
