In June, Kate Christensen , author of The Astral, came to read from her book at the final Girls Write Now CHAPTERS reading. Before the reading, mentee alum Tina Gao interviewed Kate, who talked about writing from the perspective of a man, not judging your characters, and being experimental. Watch both the performance and Tina’s interview with Kate below!
Girls Write Now is a one-of-a-kind mentorship program where young women get paired with professional women writers. Every year, their work culminates in a CHAPTERS reading where the girls get to read their work. Kate was the special guest author at the last CHAPTERS reading.
