Write live online with people all over the world

In our online writing workshops, we write and read aloud together in real time. We see each other’s faces and hear each other’s voices. This is the perfect way to unleash your writer’s voice in an amazing and powerful Amherst Writers and Artists workshop without leaving your home.

I was writing descriptions without events, like jokes without punch-lines. The workshops led me to try more active, engaging and complex storytelling. I gave up some fixed ideas about what kinds of writing I do and what kinds of writing are worth doing. After a while a novel erupted.

All you need is a computer. Once connected, we forget we’re on the Internet and concentrate on writing and reading aloud together using the Amherst Writers and Artists method as described in poet Pat Schneider’s groundbreaking 2003 book Writing Alone and With Others.
