At Stories She Wrote, we believe every girl has a story and her story deserves to be told. Founded in 2015 by former journalist L’Oreal Thompson Payton, Stories She Wrote is a safe, positive and encouraging space for young girls to share their writing with the world.
Based in Chicago, Stories She Wrote provides fun and FREE local programming for ALL girls while offering helpful resources and a powerful platform for young women writers across the globe.
Whether it’s a poem, fan fiction, a short story or personal essay, we believe their voices should not only be heard, but amplified. Through local writing workshops, middle and high school girls will learn how to embrace and explore their creative freedom.
