In the AWA method, a small group of writers gathers and the workshop leader gives a writing prompt. This can be a line of poetry, an object, a photograph -- anything that might stir memory or imagination. When the writing time ends, the writers read to the group what they have written. Because all work is new, only positive responses are allowed: what I liked, what was strong, what stays with me.
AWA keeps writers feeling safe in their writing by demanding confidentiality of the writers. All writing is presumed fiction.
Coronado resident Ann Bancroft began writing fiction after a 25-year career in journalism and communications. She was a reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle and the Associated Press. Her short stories have been published in two anthologies. She leads AWA workshops at San Diego Writers, Ink and is working on her second novel.
