Girls Write Pittsburgh
October 17, 2017 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
An event every week that begins at 7:00pm on Tuesday, repeating until October 24, 2017
Are you interested in writing? Do you like poetry, fiction, nonfiction, songwriting, playwriting, screenwriting, blogging, journalism, storytelling, or other types of creative writing? Are you a girl between the ages of 13 and 18? Girls Write Pittsburgh serves teen girls in the Pittsburgh region through the craft of creative writing, encouraging self-empowerment, growth, and discovery.
Teen girls from all backgrounds with a desire to write, share, grow, and learn from the process of writing will benefit from the project aspects such as personal accountability, personal growth and development, critical thinking, communication, leadership, public speaking, social and interpersonal relationship skills development, and rhetoric. Additionally, with a support group of relatable peers as well as strong female mentors, teen girls in Girls Write Pittsburgh will benefit from the secondary effects of a support network – enhanced decision making abilities, resulting in positive and beneficial life choices. Each program facet is designed to give girls the knowledge and support they need to develop skills and strengthen their own voices. Girls should commit to a year with Girls Write Pittsburgh.
