An online writing workshop in the AWA method


Being seen and feeling heard is an especially healing balm when we are physically distanced and feeling isolated.

• Do you love to write but you aren’t doing it regularly?

• Or did you love to write at some earlier time and have been wishing to get back to it?

• Do you have something you want to get on the page during these unusual times?

Give yourself the gift of regular creative writing time. In this four-workshop series, you will exercise and strengthen your writing voice with a small group of writers and the support of two AWA workshop facilitators. We will use the Amherst Writers and Artists (AWA) method developed by Pat Schneider (Writing Alone and With Others) to ensure we create, listen and learn together.

You do not have to consider yourself “a writer” to join this workshop. The AWA structure that supports these workshops creates an environment of support and equality where it is safe for each participant to explore and experiment with their writing and their writing voice, whether they are just beginning their writing journey, taking it up again after many years away, or whether they are an established writer who needs time and focus to support new or ongoing projects. All genres celebrated: poetry, fiction, non-fiction, memoir, essay, plays and hybrid forms.
