Write Now

Write Now, a Writing Circle for Women and Girls, is a project produced by Day Eight co-directed by Kim B Miller and Shaquetta Nelson designed to support writing by women and girls. The program includes monthly meetings with activities and field trips geared toward high school students led by the project directors. Leading DC-area journalists, educators, and poets including Dr. Casey Catherine Moore, Dine Watson, Holly Karapetkova, Thea Joselow, Norah Vawter, Liana Conyers, and Cecilia Mencia, are assisting the project directors. Write Now is produced with financial support from the Cornelia T Bailey Foundation and the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities.
