Emailing and sharing audacity files

A few of you have had trouble emailing yourselves your audacity files.  When you try to open the .aup file on audacity, it doesn't work and the screen is blank.  The reason why this is happening is because you need to attach the entire project folder, not just the audio file.
See the audacity website for more info, and feel free to respond here or send over an email for more help!  My email is
Happy editing!

Post a GIF that best describes how you felt about our first Dorkshop!

Post a gif that best describes how you felt about our very first Dorkshop of the semester!
This is how I felt:
When I saw how many bagels intern Emily T. brought-

When I was troubleshooting audacity-

But then I realized Audacity was paused and all I had to do was press the stop button and my problems were all solved- 

Seeing so many creative and talented people in action-

Introducing: Sarah the Digital Program Intern

Hey guys!  Just wanted to introduce myself.  I'm Sarah H., the digital program intern here at Girls Write Now.  I graduated from NYU in 2012, and I live on the upper east side.  I love living near/ going to Central Park and The Met!  The best book I've read this year was Where'd You Go Bernadette? by Maria Semple.  I love how intricate the story was, without comprimising the author's amazing sense of humor.  I was drawn to the book initially because in the author's bio, she said she was a former writer for Arrested Development.
Tell us about yourselves!
