About the AWA (Amherst Writers and Artists ) Workshops:

These workshops are based on the proven Amherst Writers and Artists (AWA) method of utilizing timed writing prompts, positive feedback and the power of writing in a group.

The teaching of craft is taken seriously and all AWA workshops are based on the principle that the teaching of craft can be practiced without damage to the creative spirit.

Suitable for beginners or experienced writers, the in-class writing will be shared and positive feedback will inspire further development to build trust and confidence in your writing ability.

The AWA method was developed by writer Pat Schneider and in 1981 Pat founded the Amherst Writers & Artists organization. Over the last 35 years, the AWA method has spread to writing groups across the United States and into Canada, Europe and Asia as well.
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

The AWA method is built on five essential affirmations:

  1. Everyone has a strong, unique voice.
  2. Everyone is born with creative genius.
  3. Writing as an art form belongs to all people, regardless of economic class or educational level.
  4. The teaching of craft can be done without damage to a writer’s original voice or artistic self-esteem.
  5. A writer is someone who writes.
