Girls Rising X The Hub

Girls, it’s time to let your voice be heard! Come write, discuss, and revel in what you love, in what inspires you, and discover how you’re going to change the world. From politics to body image to #metoo, we’ll be tackling what it means to be an empowered young woman right now. Any and all kinds of writing are welcome - from real-life to poems to fiction - just bring the unique girl you are.

This free workshop is in partnership with The Uptown Hub, and offers a $20 stipend for each class you attend.

If you are in high school (grades 9-12) and are a girl or self-identify as a girl, all you need to do is register to be part in this incredible workshop!
