Writing transforms lives, not only through the experience of writing itself, but also through the power of sharing our words and stories with others.

Project Write Now is a nonprofit organization offering a range of writing workshops to children, teens, and adults in our studio, located in Red Bank, N.J. In our courses, we focus on the craft of writing, exploring such narrative techniques as characterization, voice, dialogue & structure, while also providing a safe, supportive environment to experiment and take risks.

Support our Literacy Outreach Program & After-School Writing Studio. In addition to  partnering with schools and mission-based organizations to offer writing workshops and services, we also created an exciting, dynamic after-school writing studio for local students.

For more information on any of our programs, call (908) 675-0467 or email info@projectwritenow.org.

  • HOW PROJECT WRITE NOW CHANGED MY LIFE

    img_20161215_170134_31552997571_o-2

    By Jamie Galyas

    One summer morning, not long after my high school graduation, I googled local writing workshops. I had been accepted to Emerson College, but it was deferred until January 2017. I knew I needed a place to keep writing and build my confidence, and then I stumbled upon Project Write Now. My future with the nonprofit amounted to something bigger than I could have ever imagined.

    I was accepted into PWN’s summer Teen Internship Program as part of a project that involved interviewing a senior citizen and documenting his story. It was such a powerful experience that I asked Jennifer and Lisa if I could continue interning that fall. With open arms, they welcomed me, and I started helping with the after-school program. The students, mostly 7th and 8th graders from Red Bank, surprise me every day with their amazing writing talents and ambitious dreams. All of them, at such young ages, are able to write striking poems and flash fiction pieces. Then Jennifer asked me to be the lead editor for PWN’s new online literary magazine, Bridge Ink, which will launch in January.

    At PWN, everything changed for me. I was writing again. But not just articles, poetry too. I remember Jennifer telling me that a journalist needed to do creative writing, as well. I pushed myself to see beautiful things in ordinary places. Read more

    We are happy to announce that Project Write Now is offering another session for the Creative Drum Ensemble! Using the universal language of music, we engage young people in a group dynamic, promoting individual and collaborative creativity, while also providing an encouraging environment for original artistic self-expression. We begin as a percussion/drum ensemble and then incorporate other instruments, exploring jazz, funk, soul, world music, rock, and pop. We also promote the voice as an important vehicle for expression via spoken word, rap, and singing. Participants share in creative control by contributing their composition ideas. We will look for performance opportunities within Red Bank, adding our voice to its diverse and culturally rich community.

    Limited to 10 participants.
    Suggested Donation: $75 or let us know what you can pay.
