Bayshore Writers is a gathering of creative writers from Central and Northern Jersey, the Jersey Shore and beyond. We are dedicated to offering each other support, encouragement, interaction, feedback, stimulation, and an ongoing, comfortable expressive outlet.
Anyone who is currently engaged in creative writing or has "that idea" she/he wants to realize is welcome! We are not restricted by genre or form. Our focus is imaginative writing, but that certainly includes creative non-fiction as well.
At our monthly meetings, we discuss our writing progress, set goals, and then engage in some kind of imaginative writing exercise (eg. writing from prompts).
Additionally, there are also form or genre specific meetings. For example, we have a group of screenwriters who meet on a bi-weekly basis and are making excellent progress on their projects. We can have short story meetings, poetry, novel, etc. Any member can suggest an additional focused meeting.
