Murphy Writing of Stockton University

Murphy Writing of Stockton University offers programs in the US and abroad to help writers develop their craft. When writers immerse themselves in these challenging and supportive workshops and an encouraging community, they often make breakthroughs in their art. The Winter Poetry & Prose Getaway, founded in 1994, is the flagship program, attracting more than 200 poets and writers from across the country each year. In 2014, Murphy Writing became part of Stockton University.

Our Participants Say it Best

"The Getaway was exactly what I needed to recharge as a writer and start the year off on the right foot. From the supportive community to the hotel’s friendly atmosphere, I left feeling inspired. Now I can't wait to get back to work on the many projects I've lined up for myself. I only wish the Getaway could last all year!" ~ Cate, Pittsburgh, PA
