Discover your unique voice in your writing.
There are no available registration dates at this time.
Sometimes getting started is the hardest. We look at a blank page and wonder, “What should I write?” “Am I a writer?” We start writing and then our inner critic enters in and asks “Is this any good?”
You’ll find the Amherst Writers and Artists (AWA) method is a way to get the pen flowing on the page. Discover your voice by writing from provocative prompts. Share your work without criticism and find the words that resonate with your readers. In a supportive environment you find the seeds that can grow into something more. And most of all you’ll have fun writing. The weekend will inspire you to continue a writing journey in any genre – poetry, fiction, or nonfiction.
Lunch is included for both days, other meals are on your own. Lodging is available on campus, private room & bath. $75/night
