Just Write (adults)
Tuesdays, September 26 – November 7 (No Class October 31), 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Project Write Now, 25 Bridge Ave, Red Bank

Do you want to write but have no idea where to start? Do nerves prevent you from joining a writing class? This class is aimed at the shy, closeted, or new writer. In a safe, supportive environment, we invite you into the storytelling mindset with the help of thoughtful, guided writing prompts. We bring in mentor texts as inspiration―including samples of fiction, poetry, memoir, essay, and more―and we motivate you to start and continue your own writing practice. Every week, we come together to discover the stories we really want to tell and generate ways to get them onto the page. This is a beginner level, prompt-based course.

Teen Writing Group (ages 14-18)
Thursdays, September 21 – October 26, 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Project Write Now, 25 Bridge Ave, Red Bank

The Teen Writing Group is for teens writing novels, poetry collections, memoir, nonfiction, short story collections, or other projects, and for those about to start one. The projects may be in any stage of completion, from a handful of scenes and ideas to near-publication. We meet in a workshop setting to give and receive constructive feedback, advice, and encouragement to help each other move forward with our projects. This is a supportive environment, where everyone is ready to learn and grow from our shared mistakes and triumphs in writing. Find inspirational writing prompts, new friends, feedback, food, and refreshments as you join our community of teenage writers who are not afraid to accomplish their dreams. Through plot twists, cliffhangers, and verse, we move closer to finishing, editing, and (hopefully) publishing our works. (Scholarship seats & financial assistance are available.)
