Writing in Community
November 14, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm ESTFree
This class has been cancelled.
Writing is a powerful energizer. This workshop is inspired by the Amherst Writers and Artists (AWA) philosophy: A writer is someone who writes! Using a range of prompts, we will write, listen, and share in a safe environment that will inspire and build confidence. Leaving behind the formal rules and structures of writing, we find freedom to create and often discover surprises and treasures. Sometimes we don’t know what we have to say until we say it.
