This is an opportunity to experience the AWA Method online, offered by AWA each month.
During the two hours, you’ll write on the spot to a prompt or two provided by the facilitator. Then, you’ll break into small, facilitated groups to read your writing aloud if you’d like. Writing that is shared will receive positive, affirmative feedback from the small group. This particular group is just for members of the LGBTQ+ community, to provide an extra affirming, supportive experience.
We’re cycling through Fridays 1–3PM Eastern, Mondays 7–9PM Eastern, and Saturdays 1–3PM Eastern to include as many community members as possible. Each session is led by a new AWA facilitator, with even more facilitators supporting with leadership in our breakout rooms.
You can learn about the leaders of this particular session below.
One of this program’s goals is to be a fundraiser for AWA. Tickets are available at a variety of donation levels. Please choose the one that best suits your budget.
If you’d like to attend for less, you can join our AWA Writer membership and receive eight online writes per year for $5/month or $50/year!
