To date, the writing project has published two anthologies of writing and is now in its third year of operation under the leadership of Belle Terre Elementary School teacher Abbey Cook. A website is in the works to help promote the creativity of the students, and plans to expand into higher grades and also being discussed.

Organizers of the Gatsby event include Carla Cline, Joe Rizzo, Teresa Rizzo, Cindy Dalecki, Maggie Hackett and Keelyn Eickert.
