Writers at all levels of experience are welcome to participate in this three-week workshop. Using the Amherst Writers and Artists method, the workshop will stimulate creativity, help you to develop confidence in your writing, encourage new work and support other writers. (www.amherstwriters.com) In the AWA method, we write to prompts for a specific, short amount of time, from five to twenty minutes. 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. Workshop leader Ann Bancroft began writing fiction after a career in journalism. She leads AWA workshops in San Diego and Coronado and is working on a second novel.
