April Chapters Reading Series with Girls Write Now and Emma Cline

The CHAPTERS reading series is where the writers in the award-winning organization Girls Write Now go from page to stage, and where these talented young writers perform their best work. Each reading opens with a keynote speech from an inspiring writer who embodies the principles we instill in our girls: dedication to craft, determination to tell a story with honesty and brilliance, and a passion to live fearlessly. The 2017 keynote speakers include exciting new authors with fresh voices that are not always represented in the classic canon or on high school reading lists.


Pen and Brush Presents…Melissa Febos, Martha Cooley, and Gwen North Reiss

Pen and Brush Presents… is a reading series curated by Kate Angus for Pen and Brush. The series supports the work small press editors do in identifying excellent writing, as well as supporting the writing itself, by featuring exciting new work by established and emerging authors. Each month, “Pen and Brush Presents…” features readings by three writers, each one selected by editors at a press, journal, or organization with a strong female editorial presence.
