Called to Write in the AWA method
Learning more about the Amherst Writers and Artists Method.
via Welcome Writers — Called to Write
For those who are unfamiliar with the Amherst Writers & Artists (AWA) method, let me share the following.
The AWA Method is based in the following philosophy.
These affirmations rest on a definition of personhood based in equality, and a definition of writing as an art form available to all persons.
- Everyone has a strong, unique voice.
- Everyone is born with creative genius.
- Writing as an art form belongs to all people, regardless of economic class or educational level.
- The teaching of craft can be done without damage to a writers original voice or artistic self-esteem.
- A writer is someone who writes.
