Workshops & Retreats

Workshop Methods

I use two primary methods in my workshops and retreats:

 

The Amherst Writers & Artists (AWA) method, founded by Pat Schneider, which is a time-tested way to encourage writers to be bold and experimental with their writing.

 

Journaling, which draws on the pioneering work of Kathleen Adams, founder of the Center for Journal Therapy and the Journal to the Self® method.

 

I have indicated which method is primary in each of the listings below (although sometimes I do like to mix and match!). For more information about each of these methods, click on the links above.

Begins Sept. 14
Writing from the Heart: A Women's Creative Writing Workshop 

 

Section A: Mondays, 1:30 to 3:30 p.m., Sept. 14 - Oct. 19 (6 weeks) 

Online via Zoom 

 

Amherst Writers & Artists founder Pat Schneider says, "A writer is someone who writes." This means you! In this generative workshop, you’ll receive a wide variety of writing prompts to fire up your imagination, write in whichever genre(s) you choose, and read your work aloud if you wish. All feedback will celebrate what is strong and memorable in your writing. Come and share your stories in this wise and encouraging community! Women writers at any level of experience are welcome.

 

This is an Amherst Writers & Artists workshop. To learn more about this workshop method, click here.

 

Cost: $150. Please register via the PayPal link or send an email to lisa@marketstreetwriters.com if you prefer to pay by check. If finances are a hardship for you at this time, a sliding scale can be arranged.
