Career Girls Empowerment Lesson Video Series:
Literary Arts Careers (1:29 sec)

Do you like to create worlds with your imagination? A novelist, poet, filmmaker, producer, and playwright share why they are passionate about their careers in creative writing.

Imagine inventing a character or story that didn’t exist before, and being able to share it with the world! Role models in this video discuss what makes a good character or story and what they love most about their careers.

Use the Resources here to learn more about the work of a literary artist, and whether this might be a career for you.
