Lunchtime Write-In

Adults, Virtual: Zoom
Fridays, 12:15 to 1:15 p.m. ET

Join us for one hour of instructor-led writing time. Get your thoughts out and down on the page, create a story to share with others, or escape into your own imaginative world. The choice is yours! Each week, we provide three timed prompts based on a different theme. We leave time at the end of class to share your work if you choose. Research shows that daily writing has a multitude of benefits, and we provide the time, space, and support to reap those benefits. *All proceeds support PWN’s community outreach programs.

Lunchtime Write-In: Second Helpings

Adults, Virtual: Zoom
12 to 3 p.m. ET
One-Day: Friday, April 21

Join us for a special THREE-hour session of our favorite Friday drop-in generative class, “Lunchtime Write-In.” Using inspirational writing prompts based on a theme, we capture memories, create stories, or escape into our own imaginative worlds. For this special class, we take a 30-minute break for lunch during which you have the option to eat on or off screen (and always the option to have seconds)! Then we continue with a second round of writing before sharing at the end. (Sharing is always optional, but encouraged!) All proceeds support our community outreach programs.

Finding Poetry

Adults, In-Person: Woman’s Club of Red Bank (164 Broad Street, Red Bank, NJ 07701)
6 to 8 p.m.
One-Day: Friday, April 21

Join us for a fun interactive workshop during which we play with language to discover the poetry living inside and around us. Using magazines, newspapers, and other periodicals, we rip out pages, cut out phrases, and black out sentences to illuminate the words that are speaking to us. Then we harness our imaginations as we put our newly inspired thoughts down on paper. Leave finding confidence in yourself as a poet. No writing or poetry experience necessary.

Writers Walk

Adults, In-Person: Huber Woods (25 Browns Dock Rd, Locust, NJ 07760)
9:30 to 11:30 a.m.
One-Day: Saturday, May 6

Looking to connect in person with other writers? Get your creative energy moving while immersing yourself in nature? Then join us for an early morning creative walk through Huber Woods. We begin with a half hour walk to get inspired, and then we gather at picnic tables or a shady spot where we give you inspirational prompts, time to write, and time to talk about your writing projects and processes. Limited to 10 people, so please register as soon as possible. (Feel free to bring your own blanket or beach chair.) Weather permitting.
