Girls Write Pittsburgh Inspires Teen Girls to Find Their Voices

Girls Write Pittsburgh -- recently launched in Brookline -- is the city’s only program designed to empower teen girls through the creative expression of writing. This is a free program for girls age 13 to 18 who have a desire to learn the craft of writing. Through this, Girls Write Pittsburgh aims to benefit these teens in areas such as "personal accountability, personal growth and development, critical thinking, communication, leadership, public speaking, social and interpersonal relationship skills development, and rhetoric."
