We are thrilled to share the recent success stories of our writers and instructors!
Tina Hudak said her third book(!) Poetry from the Porch: Pathway through the Pandemic, a menagerie of writings from poems to flash fiction to folktales, was inspired by the prompts and good company of PWN’s Lunchtime Write-In.
“This book came to be because I joined Lunchtime Write-In, because I attend weekly, because we have a delightful and consistent group of writers, and because Lisa Hartsgrove is our moderator and mentor who listens to each and every word we share.”
Elizabeth Jannuzzi, PWN’s operations & communications manager, had an excerpt from her memoir, a chapter called “Despair and a Desk” published in HerStry‘s monthly themed section. Elizabeth is currently revising her memoir in book inc’s Book Revision Lab program. In addition, her short personal essay “Four Siblings On a Rock” was an Honorable Mention in March’s Off Topic contest and was published on their website.
Memoir Incubator writer Eileen Toomey wrote a wonderful and insightful article for The Two River Times about Project Write Now’s pivot to virtual classes during the pandemic. Read “Project Write Now: Prompting and Pivoting Writers in a Post-COVID World” (March 28, 2023). Eileen also had her poem “At the Sip and Save, 1978” published in Oyster River Pages.
