Pens of the Pandemic is the brainchild of the brilliant young women of the Intuitive Writing Project. It’s designed to be a creative community for young women all over the world. As Anne Frank once wrote, “I can shake off everything as I write; my sorrows disappear, my courage is reborn.” That’s why we’re here and why we write—to find our own light in the darkness.
Write what is real and true for you right now—fiction, creative nonfiction and poetry—and then share it here. There’s only one rule: offer only love, respect and positive feedback!
We are here to nurture the genius of our individual and collective imagination—and to encourage the heck out of each other! And someday, when this pandemic is over, we will hug the trees that grew from tiny seeds, biding their time in the deep, dark soil.
The Intuitive Writing Project is a writing-based empowerment program for teenage girls and tweens, ages 10 to 19. We envision a world in which every girl has the confidence to direct her own life, to realize her value, trust her voice, and declare what she knows to be true.
