What we're about

The Paterson Writer's Community will help writers local to the city of Paterson tell their story.

We will offer weekly, free events that foster local writing communities. Our Meetups will help members reach their writing goals in a supportive, social setting. Writing—whether it's approached professionally or as a hobby—doesn't have to be isolating. We welcome anyone who writes, regardless of genre or medium. Overall, I hope to grow this group with members writing novels, short stories, poetry, screenplays, essays, school reports and more.

Meetup Format:

Making the time to write one hour each week is an empowering and rewarding experience. It can serve as a powerful base for building your daily writing discipline.

If you RSVP that you are coming, then please arrive 10–15 minutes early. The organizer will lead introductions and then the group will write for an hour. Afterwards, there will be 15–30 minutes of social time to get to know each other. Members can talk about their successes and challenges as writers. There should be no critiquing, exercises, lectures, ego, competition or feeling guilty.

“If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it.” - Toni Morrison
