In this workshop, you will find a safe and supportive community in which to write. Whether you are a brand new or more experienced writer, the AWA (Amherst Writers and Artist) method gives you an opportunity to write several times during every session. Because this is “new work”, just created and not edited or refined, it will come most directly from the heart. Everything we share is treated as fiction, and we respond to all writing with encouragement, confidentiality and respect. Please register online once, for March 3rd, to be registered for the entire series. Class size is limited - save your spot early! www.newburylibrary. org/writingmothers location of choice for wintering Snowy Owls; common perches are dunes and salt hay staddles.
