Girls Write Now Day is an annual American holiday aimed at supporting girls from disadvantaged families. It allows you to start a new life and develop your skills in the direction of writing. Celebrating this day provides opportunities to find and support young talents who may later become world-famous book authors. It is celebrated on March 8.
The organization with the appropriate name was founded in New York in 1998 by Maya Nussbaum, while she was still a student at Columbia University. The main goal is to support girls from disadvantaged families who want to devote their lives to authorship. She developed a special program that included several areas aimed at building and developing writing skills.
In 2009, the program received approval from PCAH’s state committee because it focused on youth development and culture in general.
Girls Write Now gives girls their mentors, who are women writers in a variety of fields. They give advice on writing, point out mistakes, and help girls develop as creative individuals who can realize their thoughts and desires through writing books. There are also various seminars and lectures on writing, in which you can gain important knowledge and new skills.
- The Akkadian princess Enheduanna is considered the very first female writer to compose the Temple Hymns.
- The nickname “First Lady” in English literature was earned by the writer Jane Austen for her writings.
- One of the most famous children’s writers, Astrid Lindgren, has created a terrific story about the Kid and Carlson Who Lives on the Roof.
