Giving Voice: A Creative Writing Workshop for Women

“The function of freedom is to free someone else, and if you are no longer wracked in bondage, to tell your story.” (Toni Morrison and Anne Lamott) This workshop for women will follow the Amherst Writers Method of developing voice, craft and leadership through the practice of writing poetry, fiction and essays in a supportive group setting. This method has been highly effective with a wide variety of participants including those with marginalized gender, racial and socio-economic identities. It has also been used with survivors of trauma. Many of us return to or arrive in a writing group after having internalized the message that our voices don’t matter or that we can’t write. This method is designed to help participants overcome such barriers so they may develop the stories and perspectives only they possess. This process connects participants to their animating passions and empowers them in both their writing and their lives.

Please note: This class or event will be held online (using Zoom or a similar live platform). To participate, students or attendees should have a stable internet connection. Class participants: you should have a computer or device with a webcam and microphone; and your Zoom link will be automatically sent to you after you register.
