Anyone who lives in or loves Coronado is welcome to participate in this one-time workshop, aimed at stirring imagination and memories of Coronado in your personal history. Using the Amherst Writers and Artists method, in which writers with any level of experience are welcomed, we will respond to prompts, writing for a specific, short period, and share our new work in a supportive environment. No one is required to read, but those who do will find that all feedback is positive. The only responses allowed are: What I liked, What was strong, What stays with me, In AWA, a writer is someone who writes. All are encouraged to be writers with us in this special workshop.
Participants, especially those who have not tried this method, are almost universally surprised and pleased with the quality of writing produced using this method. What is written may serve as a jumping-off point for further work or for publication, or the workshop may simply serve as a fun, collegial experience. All writing is confidential unless the writer chooses to share his or her own writing outside the workshop.
