THE COVID RULES
At this time, due to concern about new COVID variants, the in-person group is limited to vaccinated persons. I hold no judgement regarding any writer’s vaccination status. However, I am a birth worker by day and to protect you and my high-risk clients. Writers are asked to wear a mask while inside my home. Those sitting outside are welcome to go mask free. Eventually this too shall pass, but lets take care of each other.

PROCESS:
10:30 Welcome and crab coffee
10:40 Prompts given (use or don’t use, up to you)
10:40 to 12:40 Writing
12:40 those who wish to experience the full AWA method are invited to read their JUST WRITTEN work aloud for encouraging response. No critiquing, no telling other writers what they “should, might, or could” do.

BRING:
A cushion or folding chair if you have one
Breakfasty snacks to share
Whatever you like to write on
Ready encouragement for other writers

LEAVE AT HOME:
Other writing. Sharing in this group is limited to he work just written created during our session
Judgement of others’ writing

WHO: WRITERS OF ALL LEVELS WELCOME. Whether you haven’t picked up a pen since high school or are a pro, you are welcome. 16 and up. For more on AWA method go to https://amherstwriters.org
