Virtual Writing Workshop

Each workshop is co-facilitated by a writer and an art educator. The writers are well-versed in the Amherst Writers & Artists method developed by American writer, poet, writing teacher, and editor Pat Schneider (1934–2020), based on the idea that every person is a writer, and every writer deserves a safe environment in which to experiment, learn, and develop craft. Participants will learn about artists exhibiting at The Power Plant and, for each workshop, will look at and consider different works of art that inspire different writing prompts.
