month in the WriteGirl season (September through June),
mentors lead creative writing workshops for the entire membership
in their area of expertise, such as Poetry, Songwriting,
Journalism, Screenwriting, Creative Nonfiction, etc.
Workshops are lively, interactive and rich with
writing tools, tips, techniques and shared secret recipes.
There are moments when the room is completely still
except for a slice of paper now and then and the scratch
of pens. There are other moments when questions and
answers burst out, offering sudden inspiration for
everyone. There are special guests, music, outdoor
adventures and always plenty of nutritious snacks and
workshops represent a coming together of our membership,
our combined creative power and our inspiration. The
results, some of which are captured in our newsletters and
publications, are always surprising and impressive.
Bring WriteGirl Workshops to Your Organization
WriteGirl members are available to plan, conduct and evaluate customized
creative writing workshops for any youth group that is interested in adding
the power of writing to their program activities. Because our members are
professional writers, the quality of WriteGirl workshops are bound to bring
great value to your membership, whether through a full-day workshop or
an abbreviated or focused program.
If you have tenacious communication skills and a desire to help support the
growth and development of teenaged girls, we’d love to hear from you.
