New Writing Chai Cycle to Begin July 26 – Reserve Your Spot Now

Find the Stories That Are Yours to Tell

There’s still room for you!

The Writing Chai Studio offers writers of all genres and all levels the opportunity to find the stories within them and bring them onto the page. Find the voice that makes you unique. In the past cycle, we’ve uncovered nearly forgotten memories, deepened our writing with new insights, and forged new understandings of connections to photographs.

Using the Amherst Writers & Artists (AWA) method, using time-based prompts as inspiration. All material is considered fiction and all work receives responses about what resonates or sticks. There is no critique. Certified AWA-facilitator Barbara Krasner will provide the prompts.

About the Amherst Writers & Artists Method

Pat Schneider founded the method through her book, Writing Alone and with Others (Oxford University Press, 2003). Nothing could be more appropriate to the COVID times we’re living through right now. The AWA method adheres to Five Essential Affirmations:

  1. Everyone has a strong, unique voice
  2. Everyone is born with creative genius
  3. Writing as an art form belongs to all people, regardless of economic class or educational level
  4. The teaching of craft can be done without damage to a writer’s original voice or artistic self-esteem
  5. A writer is someone who writes
