“The teaching of craft can be done without damage to a writer’s original voice or artistic self-esteem.”
― Pat Schneider (the 4th precept of the AWA Method)
Bi-Weekly Fiction Workshop Sessions
Although generating new writing (and sharing/receiving feedback from fellow participants) are the primary activities of most of the workshops, much of the writing required to achieve the biweekly targets will need to be completed at home.
Participants are welcome to use their preferred writing method in class. Pen and paper or laptops are welcomed, however since we will be working together in ZOOM rooms it is important to have a stable internet signal and good audio and video available on your computer or tablet.
A NOTE ON USING SMALL SCREENS OR CELLPHONES: Using cellphones will require considerable patience on the part of participants and is not recommended due to the limitations of the Zoom room app.
