Founded in 1998, Girls Write Now is the first organization in the country with a writing and mentoring model exclusively for girls. Girls Write Now provides guidance, support, and opportunities for at-risk and underserved girls from New York City’s public high schools to develop their creative, independent voices, explore careers in professional writing, and learn how to make healthy school, career and life choices. 

Girls Write Now gives professional women and writers the opportunity to work with these girls one-on-one, creating lasting relationships. Mentors assist their mentees with budding stories, college essays,  poetry, and more.
