Only one week left of summer camp! Register today!

Sports Writing (ages 12-14) August 22 – 26, 9am-12pm – Most of us experience sporting events with our eyes and ears, but not very much through written word. In this camp, you get to capture moments ― the sound of a bat hitting a baseball, the dribble of a basketball, or the crunch of a football helmet ― in a variety of writing styles.

Fall class schedule will be announced the week of August 22! We have lots of new classes for children, teens, and adults! 

Help send a child to a summer writing camp and donate a scholarship seat today.

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 are also developing 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.

  • Fight for your Write: Girl Power

    By Lisa Hartsgrove

    They didn’t know what to expect. Neither did I. What might come out of a “girls only” writing group? Their experiences were all bound to be very different from one another; what was too sensitive a topic? Is there such a thing? How would I handle it? How would they? Read more

    Whimsical Writing (ages 7-9)

    With Colleen Doogan

    We make writing fun! During this course, we use a notebook and lots of strategies to find the stories we want to tell. We jot, plan, organize, draw, explore, and play around with ideas to tap into our imaginations, turning our ideas from “think to ink.” We look at objects, photos, pictures from magazines, artifacts, and more to help create our unique pieces. Not only is your imagination sparked, but you also gain confidence and build literacy skills in a safe, supportive environment.

    Improv Percussion (ages 12-15)
    Mondays, September 19 – October 10, 5:30-7pm
    With Michael Sarin

    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.

    Becoming Your Own Writer: Multi-Genre Workshop (adults)
    Mondays, September 19 – October 24, 7-9pm
    With Greg Phelan

    What kind of writer are you? What subjects matter to you the most? In this workshop, we explore using the techniques of fiction, memoir, poetry, and personal essay to write personal narratives. Each week we explore a new genre through writing exercises and readings, finding inspiration in authors, such as William Maxwell, Geoff Dyer, and Karl Ove Knausgaard. We mine our own interests and histories to uncover personal subjects we feel compelled to write about.
