Project Write Now thoughtfully and elegantly gives Womyn’s Worth the opportunity to express exactly what’s on their hearts and minds. Each writing prompt and exercise has been so well presented and received. The women often didn’t even realize that they could and would share on this level.Sharda Jetwani-Love, Program Director, Lunch Break
Project Write Now has inspired me to journal, and this has helped me relieve stress and anxiety. Also, how to forgive myself. Thank you.Lunch Break

The Teacher Writing Collaborative has been a powerful opportunity to connect with other teachers who believe that to teach writing, we must be willing to write. The writing prompts and discussions encourage us to use writing as a way to express our identity, which is closely linked to the work of educating for a just society. The strategies shared and conversations we have inform the teaching I do. This has been one of the most authentic teaching networks that I have been involved with.A. K.
The Teen Ambassador program has allowed me to connect with fellow writers and channel my creativity in a place where I feel heard and appreciated. It has provided me with so much support in an extremely confusing time.M. F.
That was a truly amazing experience. We cannot thank you enough for your time and great coaching. These few weeks have not been easy … This meeting lifted my spirit and energized me.Second Chance Red Bank Cancer Support Group
Working with Project Write is refreshing. They provide the space to breathe … releasing the strings that do not serve us anymore through creativity, allowing each one of us to ‘innerstand’ the importance of self-love. Thank you for all the work and healing you do.Lunch Break

The Judith M. Chauhan “Make a Difference” Fund
“Go write.” Those were the words Judith Chauhan would say to her daughter, Jennifer Chauhan, whenever Jennifer was struggling or needed to express herself. Jennifer took those words and her mother’s encouragement and pursued a career in journalism and education, eventually co-founding Project Write Now as a way to offer people of all ages and populations opportunities to write their stories, express themselves, and be heard. This fund is very dear to Jennifer’s heart as it is created in her mother’s memory. Judith passed away in 2007 after a short battle with metastatic lung cancer. Judith was a tremendous influence not only in Jennifer’s life but also in the lives of all who knew her—through her volunteer work at her children’s schools to her role as Director of Human Resources for a government nonprofit. A woman of action, she inspired family, friends, and colleagues with her mantra, “If you’re on this planet, make a difference.” Project Write Now is a tribute to Judith’s memory and the fund will support all of the free community programs Project Write Now offers.
