About Girls Write Now
Distinguished as one of the top after-school arts and culture programs in the nation by The President’s Committee on Arts & Humanities, Girls Write Now (GWN) is New York’s first and only non-profit with a writing and mentoring model exclusively for girls. From young women exploring writing to seasoned professionals practicing their craft every day, GWN is a community of women writers dedicated to providing the guidance, support and opportunities for high-school girls to develop their creative, independent voices, and write their way to a better future. 100% of GWN’s seniors graduate and move on to college—bringing with them portfolios, awards, scholarships, new skills, and a sense of confidence.
Founded in 1998, GWN has a rich history of delivering successful, premium programming free of cost to an audience that is overwhelmingly low-income and of color. For nearly fifteen years, the organization has built a record of achievement and innovation that has been recognized twice by the White House, by The New York Times, NBC Nightly News, the MacArthur Foundation, and global branding firm Siegel+Gale. In 2012, GWN was honored by Youth, I.N.C. as one of the three most enterprising and innovative nonprofits improving the lives of New York City youth.
