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.

  • 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

    with Jennifer Chauhan

    Stet, what? Oxford comma, who? Are you baffled by proofreading marks? Do you feel “less than” because you don’t use the proper copy editing techniques when making revisions to your classmates’ work? Don’t fear! Our beloved co-founder, executive director, and instructor, Jennifer Chauhan, is here to tell us all about the wonderful world of copy editing–the process of correcting written material to improve accuracy and readability, and to ensure the material has consistency.

    *Is copy editing one word or two? What style guide do I use? Help, Jennifer!

    This workshop is at maximum capacity. Please email info@projectwritenow.org for notification on all upcoming one-day workshops.

    What helps you bang out the pages? Put your butt in the chair? In this workshop, we discuss some of the tools (software, gadgets, tricks) that writers use to boost their productivity. On the agenda is an overview of popular word-processing programs including Scrivener, Microsoft Word, and Google Drive. Other topics include:

    • Productivity tools such as ambient noise generators and writing schedule calculators
    • Editing tools such as Grammarly or Hemingway Editor
    • Other activities that help encourage writing

    Attendees walk away with an overview of useful tools but are also encouraged to share their writing tips and advice with their fellow writers. This workshop is available free of charge, but we are asking for a $25 donation to support Project Write Now’s community outreach programs.
