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, and 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.

    by Elizabeth Jannuzzi

    Find the Contest Opportunity

I’m intrigued because the contest is for flash nonfiction and I had fun writing a one-minute memoir for a previous contest from Brevity. And then I’m wow’ed by the $500 prize. I don’t really think I could win, but … it would be fun to write and fun to try. Read more
