Deborah Bayer has been a certified AWA affiliate since 2017. She’s participated in many AWA groups. After she retired from her medical practice, she began leading groups online. Her approach is influenced by skills she learned in Narrative Medicine. Writers of all levels are welcome, but people adjacent to the healthcare system (as practitioners or due to personal/family illness) will get the most benefit from this session

Sue Reynolds is a psychotherapist, a writer and a writing facilitator passionate about the Amherst Writers and Artists method. She is both past president of the Writers Community of Durham Region and past vice-president of the national Canadian Creative Writers and Writing Programs (Canada’s version of the AWP). She has served on the board of AWA since 2014. For thirteen years she led writing workshops for female inmates at Central East Correctional Centre, a program for which she received the 2007 June Callwood Award for Outstanding Volunteerism. Through workshops, international retreats, sanctuaries and courses, Sue helps writers dig deep to mine their own authentic treasure.
