WriteGirl (www.writegirl.org) is a creative writing and mentoring organization that empowers underserved teen girls in Los Angeles through mentoring relationships with women writers, hosting large-scale writing workshops at such places as the Huntington Gardens, MOCA and NBCUniversal. Since 2001, WriteGirl has maintained a 100% success rate in guiding girls to not only graduate from high school but also enroll in college.
WriteGirl is seeking women writers in all genres including novelists, poets, journalists, songwriters, copywriters, legal writers, and more to help mentor teen girls, lead workshops and inspire girls to express their creative ideas. Weekly, monthly and periodic mentoring opportunities available.
WriteGirl is also seeking professional women to volunteer behind-the-scenes with events, public relations, fundraising, and partnerships. (Strong communication skills required.)
