The Huntington’s Education staff recently formed a partnership with WriteGirl,
a Los Angeles-based creative writing and mentoring organization that,
according to the WriteGirl website, “launched in December 2001 to bring
the skills and energy of professional women writers to teenage girls who
do not otherwise have access to creative writing or mentoring
programs.” Huntington reader Ayana Jamieson is the founder of the Octavia E. Butler Legacy Network, a group of scholars, artists, activists, and fans devoted to the works of science fiction writer Octavia E. Butler, whose papers reside at The Huntington.
Jamieson helped develop curriculum for the partnership, which included a
one-day creative writing workshop at The Huntington using Butler
materials. She shares a description of the day.
