An evening supporting WriteGirl

Through one-on-one mentoring and monthly creative writing workshops, girls are given techniques, insights and hot topics for great writing in all genres from professional women writers. Workshops and mentoring sessions explore poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, songwriting, journalism, screenwriting, playwriting, persuasive writing, journal writing, editing and more.

Chasing Beauty provides a rare glimpse into the dark side of the intriguing and complex world of modeling. The documentary features interviews with supermodels, photographers, agents, designers, plastic surgeons, make-up artists and psychologists and asks the question...
...what is beauty and is it worth the cost?
