The Princeton Writing Group welcomes writers from the wider Central NJ region and beyond. We are open to writers of all genres and forms (books, scripts, poem, dissertations, etc.). Our purpose is to provide a supportive environment for writers, with emphasis on productivity, community, and improvement. 

Our members are self-directed, and use the group as a resource to further their goals. PWG was founded to provide a regular space for writers to meet and work on their individual projects. Our Weekly Write-Ins are the backbone of the group, providing members with a chunk of time they can dedicate to their work. The routine and consistency allow us to accomplish the things we were putting off to ‘one day.’ Great things happen when you make time for them.

We also host discussions, go on field trips, run contests, hold mixers, and we are expanding into critiques. For most meetings, you do not need to worry about arriving late or leaving early. Come when you can, for as long as you can. It is polite to let the organizer of the meetup know. 

We do not require that you be a professional or published writer, only that you have spirit and dedication. There are no age limits or recommendations. We ask that minors be accompanied by an adult. We are open to suggestions from members, and would love to hear from you.
