Literary Anthology. Young Adult. Fiction. Nonfiction. Poetry. Edited by Karen Taylor. SILHOUETTE: BOLD LINES & VOICES FROM WRITEGIRL, the eighth anthology from WriteGirl, captures the unique perspectives of women and girls writing about love, fear, relationships, school, accordions, foreign countries, Los Angeles, pastrami and the world around us. SILHOUETTE celebrates the voices of teens from more than 60 different Los Angeles high schools, and women writers from top newspapers, entertainment companies and publishers. Writing advice throughout the book and an entire chapter with a variety of writing experiments will help you develop and share your own bold voice. "Of all the marvelous things women bring to the table of civilization--patience, love, warmth, food--our voices are the most important. WriteGirl is essential to helping our young women know how important their thoughts and feelings, not just their looks and bodies, are. Right on, girls--WriteGirl!"--Nikki Giovanni. "WriteGirl is one of the most inspirational, innovative, charming projects gracing the contemporary literary scene. And SILHOUETTE is one of its finer manifestations. These girls really CAN write!"--Carolyn See.
