Distinguished twice by the White House as one of the nation's best after-school arts and cultural organizations, and recently honored by Newsweek in an article on after-school programs that make a difference, Girls Write Now works to empower underserved teen girls in New York City by pairing them with professional women writers who serve as their personal mentors. (R)evolution showcases the best poetry, prose, and essays from the mentees and mentors of Girls Write Now on the theme of "Revolution," and includes a bonus section of writing exercises and prompts for individuals and groups. Powerful and inspiring, (R)evolution showcases the brave new voices that are changing the world of literature, one girl at a time.
