Introducing the NJWP blog!

Pines Lake ES (Wayne) students w/teaching artist Meredith Sue Willis
For many years the NJ Writers Project has engaged students throughout the state in creative writing residencies primarily in poetry, prose, and playwriting. These dynamic programs are experienced by a variety of participants whose experiences have been documented in a series of evaluations and narratives that are not often shared with the public. This blog will provide us with a forum through which to share some of those stories. Stay tuned!
