In her new book Yes Please, Amy Poehler explains how she goes through life saying yes to every opportunity that comes her way. It’s opened her up to opportunities and given her chances. But what if you’re a teen girl with limited access to resources and role models, and very few opportunities come across your path? Amy has worked to make sure that girls get these opportunities through her work with Girls Write Now, New York’s first and only writing and mentoring organization for high school girls, and her own Amy’s Smart Girls.
In support of this initiative, Wattpad and HarperCollins are hosting the Yes Please by Amy Poehler Writing Contest. We want to head about a moment when your life changed because of saying yes? Share your Yes moment, and you could win a Yes Please prize pack that includes a tweet shout out from Amy’s Smart Girls.
