Thank you Monmouth Arts for honoring us with the 2018 Community Arts Education Organization Award in honor of our outstanding commitment to arts education.

Thank you Source Foundation at Red Bank Regional High School for honoring us with the 2017-18 Outstanding Service Award.

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.

Our Mission

Project Write Now is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization transforming individuals, organizations, and communities through writing. By taking a class, you help support our community programs.

  • How to Submit: The Journey of Contest Submission

    by Elizabeth Jannuzzi

    Find the Contest Opportunity

    I cruise through my CRWROPPS (Creative Writers Opportunities) emails that come in. I see one that catches my eye. 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

We explore hand drums as well as other percussion instruments, using the rhythms of jazz, funk, soul, world music, rock, and pop. We welcome and encourage any and all who play other instruments to bring them so we can incorporate them into the group. We also promote the voice as an important vehicle for expression via spoken word, rap, and singing. No musical experience necessary. Limited to 12 participants per class. Pay per class – $20 adults, $10 children.

    with Jennifer Gaites

    If you have thought about writing a memoir but have no idea where to begin, this is the class for you. In a safe, supportive environment, we invite you into the storytelling mindset with guided prompts while also introducing the fundamentals of memoir writing—characterization, voice, setting, emotional resonance—using mentor texts as inspiration. Each week, we come together to discover the stories we were meant to tell and the motivation needed to start and continue our own writing practice.
