WriteGirl is a creative writing and mentoring organization in Los Angeles that helps teen girls discover and express their creative voices.  The mission of WriteGirl: “Within a community of women writers, WriteGirl promotes creativity and self-expression to empower girls.”
WriteGirl has two main programs: the Core Mentoring Program, in which teen girls are matched with professional women writers for one-on-one mentoring, genre-specific workshops, public readings, publications and college and scholarship application assistance; and the In-Schools Program, where volunteer mentors lead weekly workshops to improve literacy and communication skills at schools in critically at-risk neighborhoods.
