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

  • It’s Coming Together!

    By Jennifer Chauhan

    Last night, I drove home up the Garden State Parkway in a euphoric daze singing along to, of all things, “Party in the USA,” by Miley Cyrus. I had just left Project Write Now’s studio, where we had held a rehearsal for our upcoming fundraising event, “Come Together: A Performance + Party,” to be held next Friday, October 13, at the Two River Theater.

    With our adult and teen writers, a percussionist, and a guitar player, we forged ahead as best we could in our cozy studio, chairs on top of each other, musicians tucked between desks. One by one, our writers stood and read the pieces they’ve been writing and rewriting for the past few weeks––their personal stories of loss, love, perseverance, and discovery. We practiced our lines, paused, played around with musical interludes, and read again. We laughed at our missteps and encouraged one another to keep going, to move past missed lines and near falls.

Whether you are writing essays or short prose or working on a novel or longer project, come discuss what you are trying to do, get ideas, support, and inspiration. Commit to your own writing while also supporting other local women in their writing lives. We will discuss craft and share work for feedback.

    The Notebook Project (ages 8-11)
    Mondays, November 6-December 18, 4:30 to 5:30 p.m.
    with Colleen Doogan

    One of the most important tools a young writer can have is a writer’s notebook. During this class, we show you how to think like a writer and use your notebook as a place to explore the heights and depths of your imagination. We jot, plan, organize, draw, play around with ideas, explore, and just plain have fun with ordinary moments of our lives. We look at objects, photos, pictures from magazines, artifacts, and more, moving you from “I have nothing to write about” to “I have SO much to write about.” This class is perfect for the beginning of the school year to help inspire young writers.
