Writing on the Right

Based in LA, WriteGirl has been helping girls find their voices through a variety of programs since December 2001. They bring the skills and energy of professional women writers to teenage girls who do not otherwise have access to creative writing or mentoring programs through one-on-one mentoring and monthly workshops. The organization has grown and there are several publications out already as a result of all the creative juices and hard work from both the women and girls. Now, to celebrate their five-year anniversary, they are holding an official launch party for their fifth anthology: Untangled. Keren Taylor, Executive Director, told me in this collection of poetry, fiction, songs, memories, scenes and creative non-fiction, girls and women work through the knots and give shape to deeply personal thoughts and feelings on family, friendship, society, school and love. So, if you're going to be on the left coast on Tuesday, December 5th, celebrate the writers and this organization at The Grill at Universal Studios (3900 Lankershim Blvd., Universal City, CA) from 7 - 9 p.m. RSVP is required so email TODAY!!!! or call 323.363.1287.
