Murphy Writing Autumn Writing Getaway

Galloway, N.J. – Murphy Writing of Stockton University will present the Autumn Writing Getaway at the Stockton University Campus Center, 101 Vera King Farris Drive, from 9:15 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 3.

Participants will spend the day writing in one of the following workshops:
Poetry — Poetry of Place with Peter Murphy
Fiction — Grounding Your Story: A Fiction Workshop with Roberta Clipper
Memoir — No Place Like Home: Writing Memoir from Your Roots with Anndee Hochman

Following the method that workshop leader Peter Murphy, an adjunct professor at Stockton, has developed over 40 years of teaching, participants will discuss the craft of creative writing before working on prompts that will challenge them to write for expression and discovery. The day will also offer opportunities to share new work in read-around sessions.

“Writing is typically a solitary act,” Murphy explained. “When writers come together in a supportive community that encourages them to push their boundaries, they often experience breakthroughs. The unique exercises will allow this supportive program to benefit both beginning and experienced writers. The workshops create an encouraging community of writers where all feel welcome.”

"I had a story published in a magazine thanks to one of your [writing exercises],” said Kim Trotto of Little Egg Harbor. “You can’t do better than that!”

The cost is $85 which includes lunch and six hours of professional development credit for educators. Advance registration is required. For full registration information, visit or call 609-626-3594.
