What is WriteGirl? Well, it’s awesome. In a nutshell…

WriteGirl is a nonprofit organization for high school girls centered on the craft of creative writing and empowerment through self-expression. Through one-on-one mentoring and monthly workshops, girls are given techniques, insights and hot tips for great writing in all genres from professional women writers.

It’s all about the writing, yeah, but the mentoring goes way beyond that… encouraging teen girls to make great life choices and preparing them for college.

Dude, basically, it means never underestimate the power of a girl and her pen… :) You go girls!

The event was packed. For us the main attraction was seeing WriteGirl mentors Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, authors of Beautiful Creatures and most recently Beautiful Darkness.

Beautiful Darkness synopsis:
Ethan Wate used to think of Gatlin, the small Southern town he had always called home, as a place where nothing ever changed. Then he met mysterious newcomer Lena Duchannes, who revealed a secret world that had been hidden in plain sight all along. A Gatlin that harbored ancient secrets beneath its moss-covered oaks and cracked sidewalks. A Gatlin where a curse has marked Lena’s family of powerful supernaturals for generations. And now that Ethan’s eyes have been opened to the darker side of Gatlin, there’s no going back.

Rumor has it this series will be the “new Twilight”. Except in this world, the GIRLS have the powers Baby!
