This women’s workshop series follows the Amherst Writers & Artists (AWA) method with prompts and positive feedback to bolster our creative practice. Participants find a supportive environment in which to develop each unique voice.
Each 2-hour AWA session follows several prompts to spark memory and imagination and generate new writing. Whenever writers choose to read their work aloud they receive immediate, reflective group feedback. To support the development of each writer, our responses focus solely on what is strong and memorable in each piece — no critiques. Self-identified women and non-binary writers with any level of experience are welcome!
Amherst Writers & Artists is a non-profit organization whose mission is to support the voices of established and emerging writers, to free silenced and marginalized voices, and to promote respect for the artist in all writers. AWA defines a writer simply as "someone who writes."
