2 Stafford press releases: writing & wellness

January 11, 2010


MANAHAWKIN – The Stafford branch of the Ocean County Library will present the kick-off meeting of its Creative Writing Group Wednesday afternoon, Jan. 20th at 1 PM.

Creative writing is an expression of the writer’s thoughts and emotions, rather than merely conveying information. If you love to write in any form – fiction, poetry, screenplays, etc., – this is a chance to meet others with the same passion. Share ideas and information, with the option of bringing in a one-page sample of your work with some copies for others to read.

Ms. Marguerite Jones will be the facilitator.


MANAHAWKIN – The “Journey to Wellness” – presented by the Mental Health Association of New Jersey – will be at the Stafford branch of the Ocean County Library on Monday, January 25th, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

It provides an environment of support to individuals who are experiencing mental health and/or substance abuse concerns.

This peer-run, self-help center empowers individuals having problems with alcohol, drugs, stress, anxiety, depression, etc., to achieve and maintain their wellness, and realize their full potential.

This is a non-profit organization, all discussion is confidential, and no fees are involved. No appointment is necessary.
