Project Write Now is excited to announce a NEW series of IN-PERSON storytelling events. Throughout the year, we gather at Basie Center Cinemas in Red Bank, NJ, to present our artistic endeavors on stage.
Each event focuses on a different theme or genre, but all are welcome to attend to either perform their pieces* or support their fellow writers.
