The AWA Conference, originally scheduled for October 4th & 5th in 2014, will now take place May 2nd and 3rd, 2015. It will be at the Willits-Hallowell Conference Center in South Hadley, MA. As before, it is open only to AWA-trained workshop leaders and will offer similar elements that have been part of the Post-Certificate Training.
Sessions offered may include workshops on poetry, memoir and fiction craft; manuscript review; working with outreach groups such as veterans, children and teens, and the incarcerated; how to establish a non-profit; how to launch a business; and more. You will have the opportunity to hear from how experts have used the AWA method to support voices and develop skills. You will come away a more informed workshop leader and an inspired writer.
The AWA Conference is a gathering of AWA voices and energies, and a chance to re-visit and develop writing and workshop skills. Registration for the rescheduled conference is not yet open but when it is, an announcement will be made on our social media and in our newsletter.
