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.
