The theme for May 29th is "So.... THAT Happened!”.

Proceeds from all shows are donated to various female-centric charitable organizations. The May 29th, 2018 meeting's proceeds will go to Girls Write Now.

About Girls Write Now:

Girls Write Now mentors underserved high school girls from throughout New York City’s five boroughs — over 90% high need and 95% girls of color — who must rise above the race and income-based inequalities of the city’s public school system and the nation’s workforce. Through one-to-one mentoring with professional women writers and media makers, writing and technology workshops, and leadership, college prep, and professional development opportunities, we inspire women to share their craft and empower girls to find their voices and tell their stories.
