Come have your words valued and your confidence buoyed by a small, supportive community of writers. Come discover that writing with others is catharsis, creation, and a damn good time! Come write, regardless of experience, and find yourself producing and listening to fresh and surprising new works of fiction, poetry, lovesongs, personal essays, personal vendettas, hybrid forms, or even just a nascent flurry of ink on paper–the seed and the spark for deeper exploration–through the celebrated Amherst Writers & Artists method.
The 2nd Fall 2017 session will begin at The Jalopy Theatre & School of Music on November 5th Come Cast Off! with me.
“A writer is someone who writes.” ~ William Stafford
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ H. Jackson Brown, Jr.’s mother, by many sources, though often attributed to Mark Twain. I’m putting my money on the unnamed mother.
