Amherst Writers & Artists (AWA) Writing Workshops & Events

Welcome! – 

New site has been established for all AWA Events: Called to Write 

Writing has been an outlet for me to create, heal to sing!

The Amherst Writers and Artists (AWA) method allows anyone regardless of ethnicity, economical status, educational level to experience a safe space to find and share your voice.

There are five principles of the AWA method:

  1. Everyone has a strong and 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 writers original voice or artistic self-esteem.
  5. A writer is someone who writes.

My current Workshop ‘Called to Write’ is coming to a close, however, I will be offering more workshops throughout the year.
