Post-Certificate Training

The Post-Certificate Training is a secondary course of training for workshop leaders who have been leading workshops for at least one year and is led by two of the Initial Leadership Instructors.

This training provides experienced AWA workshop leaders with the opportunity to further their knowledge of the AWA method. Like the initial training, it is not a retreat, but a re-immersion into what makes a successful AWA workshop. Topics include in-depth discussion and practice in the teaching of craft, manuscript review, publicity, working with emotionally charged writing and group dynamics. This is an extraordinary opportunity for AWA-trained workshop leaders to share their questions, experiences and writing with each other and with a long-standing leader of the AWA community.  Each Post-Certificate Training is tailored to the individual concerns of the attendees.
