Join us on Friday, October 23 at 6PM EST for the kickoff of this fall’s Friday Night Salon Series with New York Times bestselling author Brit Bennett.
Our Friday Night Salons are a space for our community to learn from and write with incredible authors, poets, journalists and novelists. This event is free and open to the public because of generous viewers like you who power Girls Write Now’s cutting-edge programs. If you are able to pay, your donation will help make more events like this possible. Thank you!
