Get in step with your writing!

Compass Writers 5 or 10 Week AWA Writing Workshops take place in 2 different ways:

  • Hybrid in-person/online in Seattle. Limit 10 writers. For upcoming workshops check the events page. Or if you have a group of a minimum of 5 and maximum of 10 writers who would like a 10-week private workshop, contact me.

  • Online via Zoom. For upcoming workshops check the events page.


Workshops generally meet Sundays for 10 weeks (9 am-1 pm PST) and are facilitated by one or more certified Amherst Writers & Artist workshop leaders. Other days can be arranged. Learn more about Amherst Writers & Artists Method on our FAQ page.

Limit 10 people as we seek to create an intimate writing space. In this space, the positive, art-affirming Amherst Writers & Artists (AWA) method works to dismantle the archaic belief that writing is the domain of other, smarter, more educated, "real writers."


As facilitators of this method, we believe whole-heartedly that if you pick up a pen or sit at a keyboard and write, YOU are a writer. YOU are an artist. This is a gentle, safe place for all writers no matter your background and no matter your writing experience.


  • $300 per person for 10 weeks (40 hours total).

NOTE: Two spots are always available on a sliding fee scale no fee to 75% of fee.
