December AWA Generative Writing Workshop with Lauren

December 30 at 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm EST


This is a generative writing workshop using the Amherst Writers & Artists (AWA) method, where you’ll write new pieces based on prompts (or whatever you feel like writing), followed by reading and responses that only identify what’s working or what resonates with readers in your writing (no critique!).

This workshop is for all levels of writers, including beginners who might not yet identify as a writer. It’s also open to all genres (fiction, nonfiction, poetry, etc.). I believe (and the AWA method agrees) that a writer is someone who writes, so I hope to encourage more people to embrace the identity and benefit from this artform.

*I am an AWA Affiliate, certified to lead workshops in the AWA method as described in Writing Alone and With Others by Pat Schneider, Oxford University Press. I am also a writer with numerous publications and contest/award wins for my poetry, short fiction, and short nonfiction. I have written a novel and am consistently improving my writing and industry knowledge through various classes, workshops, etc.

➡️When: Saturday, December 30th, 4pm-6pm CT
