Writers' Night Out

Join us for a Statewide Writers' Night Out at the Hatbox Theatre in Concord, NH on Sunday, May 14th at 6:00 PM.  In addition to a a presentation of this year's Three-Minute Fiction Slam Winner, Peggy McFarland's The Commute, , you will see three NH Writers' Project works, read by actors, and you get to give and hear audience feedback.


Writers' Night Out is your chance to meet and mingle with other writers in a welcoming setting.

Please see the list below for important April Changes!

We meet the first Monday of every month in locations across the state. Join us for this informal gathering where you can discuss what you are working on, what you are reading, where you are submitting your work, and more. Several locations feature special events. Regardless the special guest is you. All NHWP Writers' Night Out events take place at 7 p.m. (unless otherwise noted below). If you would like to host a Writers' Night Out in your region, let us know.
