WriteGirl In The Archives

WriteGirl is more than just an organization—it is a support system, a space that inspires, and a community that fosters creativity in young women through writing. As part of a year-long Revealing Women in the Archives initiative at the Autry, which includes the What’s Her Story: Women in the Archives exhibition, the Autry partnered with nine WriteGirl participants through a Discovery Fellows workshop series. During the workshops, the participants learned how to archive materials, engaged with museum professionals, and documented the experience through writing exercises. This zine is the outcome of those collaborations. It reflects their voices, these contemporary times, and the power of documenting. This zine is a playful archive of a series of workshops with WriteGirl and the Autry. They started Jan. 25, 2020, and then were rudely interrupted by a global pandemic.
