Frequently Asked Questions

Is WriteGirl Free?

Yes! WriteGirl is absolutely free. Our workshops are always free for WriteGirl members and we provide all of the necessary materials. We also provide lunch at many of our workshops.

Is there a program for boys?

WriteGirl is open to girls ages 13 to 18, but boys can always attend our public events!

Our Bold Ink Writers program serves teen boys and co-ed groups at various school sites around Los Angeles County. Click here to learn more.

The season has already started, is it too late to submit an application?

No! While our full workshop season begins in October and ends in June, we are always accepting mentee applications.

We accept volunteer applications throughout the year as well. However, we only have a handful of volunteer training sessions, so if you apply after the last session of the season, you will have to wait until the new season to be trained and begin volunteering.

I’m not a writer, can I still volunteer with WriteGirl?

Absolutely! There are many different ways to help WriteGirl, many of which do not require writing or mentorship. The most important quality of our volunteers is that they are good role models for our mentees!
