Read a bit of your short story, play, screenplay, memoir, novel, essay, poem, blog post — any constellation of words, really — and let us know how we can support you. Indicate whether you want general feedback, specific notes or simple encouragement, and be willing to offer constructive comments to fellow writers as well. It’s a friendly atmosphere and a great way to meet other aspiring wordsmiths.Time & Place: 7 pm at the Stephen Crane House, 508 Fourth Ave., Asbury Park (no meeting in July, regular schedule resumes in August)PLAYWRITING/SCREENWRITING GROUPThe Playwriting/Screenwriting group meets on mostly the second Sunday of the month for playwrights and screenwriters to connect, read their work and get feedback in a positive, supportive and nurturing environment.

Writers bring in up to 20 pages of material to be read, hand out parts to readers and receive feedback on their work.
