Workshops & Weekend Retreats

for Writers in All Genres/at All Levels


Early Fall 2017 – Late Spring 2018 Offerings

…to include a monthly poetry workshop, a monthly all-genres project support workshop, and Friday weekly workshops for all genres!


All currently enrolling workshops are listed below. All classes are facilitated in the Amherst Writers and Artists (AWA) method, in which all shared writing is treated with respect and honor. The focus is on the writing itself, and the writer will learn what is strong, what is memorable, and what people admire in his/her first-draft work, as well as receive supportive feedback and strategies for continued work on submitted manuscripts. Snacks and tea and unstructured writerly hangout-time included!

Coming Soon: More Friday Weekly Workshops!
