Our mainstay contributors are part of The Intuitive Writing Project, a writing-based self-empowerment program for teenage girls.The Intuitive Writing Project also holds writing classes and quarterly “salons” for women, and we invite those attendees to publish their work here as well. We welcome guest contributors. Please contact melissa@intuitivewritingproject.org for more information.

Melissa Quiter, Editor-in-Chief

Former teacher and Journalism Advisor for Miramonte High School’s award-winning newpaper, The Mirador, Melissa is both the Editor-in-Chief of The Intuitive Voice, as well as the Director of Middle School Programs. As the mother of two young children, she is piecing together time to write, her first love. She is honored to be working with such remarkable and inspiring young writers.

Elizabeth Perlman, Executive Director of The Intuitive Writing Project

Elizabeth created The Intuitive Writing Project because it was what she wanted and needed when she was a teen:  a place to write her truth and have it heard. After college, she looked for a place like this where she could work. But the place she was looking for didn’t yet exist. It was only after working in advertising for 15 years that she realized:  she would have to get over her fear and just create the world she wanted! Now that TIWP has both a headquarters and an online publication (thanks to the amazing and brilliant Melissa Quiter!), she hopes that this world—both real and virtual—will become a creative kind of home for every girl (and woman) with something she needs to say. “Declare what you to know to be true,” she says, “and we will listen.”
