Welcome, [mepr-account-info field=”first_name”]!

Thank you for signing up for an AWA Writer membership.

Online Writes

We’re so excited to write with you. We offer online AWA writing sessions every month and your membership includes EIGHT free sessions per year! You can attend as many sessions as you want beyond those eight for a sliding scale donation of $10-20. We host one each month, rotating between Mondays, Fridays and Sundays at different times to try to meet diverse time zone needs—we’re grateful for our international community!

You can browse and register for all the year’s sessions on our calendar or you can select from those upcoming that interest you here:

Affinity Groups

In addition to our monthly writing series, we also offer additional online groups open only to specific populations, like caregivers, BIPOC writers, LGBTQ+ writers, and Spanish-speaking writers. These can be included in your eight free sessions per year. You can see those included in the list above!

Readings and Publications

We plan to host a semi-annual online reading series with readers sourced from our AWA Writer community. There will be an application to share your work with us for that opportunity available soon.

From the work shared at the online readings, we’ll put together a yearly publication under AWA Press.

Both of these will showcase only AWA Writers and Affiliates!

Book 30 minutes with one of our editors to receive encouraging, constructive feedback on 2 pages of prose or one poem. Members will receive a significant discount on this service!
