I have to give a shot out to WriteGirl in Los Angeles. WriteGirl just went to Washington DC National Arts and Humanities Youth Award. They even got the opportunity to meet Michelle Obama! I was a mentor for WriteGirl for three years when I lived in LA and I am so jealous of the women that have the opportunity to share their talents with all those talented teenagers.
If you live in LA check out WriteGirl. WriteGirl even published a yearly anthology of all the girls writings. Check out WriteGirl.org for more information!
