Girls Write Now is a charming nonprofit that I was introduced to earlier this month. For 12 years, this organization has cultivated new writers through a cadre of female writers who mentor girls in the program. I attended their open house celebrating the beginning of a new season and relocation to a lovely loft in Manhattan. It was so much fun walking around the space and reading the work of girls in books and on the walls. I entered the raffle and won a signed copy of Praise Song for the Day by Elizabeth Alexander! This win felt slightly cosmic because I had just heard Elizabeth give a talk at the Women & Power conference. I could say more, but I'll close with these words: the space is fab and so is the mission:).
Here are a few photos from the event:
