“I didn’t know writers could be real live people, because I never knew any writers.” ~ Rita Dove, Poet Laureate of the United States

Amherst Writers & Artists, a non-profit, international arts organization, has trained over 1000 workshop leaders in the AWA method. Workshops have been conducted all over the world including Canada, Ireland and Malawi. High school teachers have been trained to incorporate the AWA method into their composition courses. AWA workshop leaders take the AWA method to correctional facilities, assisted living facilities, housing projects, hospice wards, domestic abuse shelters and organizations targeting under-served members of the community.

Please contact Michele to lead creative writing workshops as part of programs in your agency and to discuss sources that will fund projects in programs that serve the community.
