Exposition Review's

WriteGirl has long been one of Exposition Review’s favorite creative writing non-profits. Not only does it help emerging authors develop their skills and receive invaluable mentorship, but given that Exposition Review is an all-female editorial team, we also love WriteGirl’s emphasis on empowering young women. Every year they work with over 500 girls throughout Los Angeles, and since their launch 2001, they have seen a remarkable 100% (yes 100%) of WriteGirls go to college.

Yet we’ve always been aware that for the latter category, the plays we publish are not in their final form: they are meant to be performed in front of an audience.

Jeffrey Lo’s Where You’re From first appeared as a short play in Vol. I: IX Lives; now, it’ll be performed as a staged reading of a full play, Waiting For Next, at the Chromolume Theatre!
