Event description

Description

Beginning and experienced writers are invited to join Barbara Steiner for a day-long creative writing workshop at Aryaloka Buddhist Center. Based on the Amherst Writers and Artists method, we’ll write in response to exercises (which you are free to ignore) designed to help us bypass our inner critic and write from what comes to us. We’ll be invited to share what we’ve written, and respond to each other’s pieces with what we like and what works. This method helps generate material from the images, experiences and feelings we carry inside ourselves, without critique, questions or suggestions. To create a supportive and safe space, we maintain confidentiality, treat what we write as fiction, and concentrate on the writing at hand.

Barbara is a certified facilitator in the Amherst Writers and Artists Method developed by Pat Schneider. She has written and trained extensively with AWA-trained facilitator Patricia Lee Lewis, and has been a member of the Aryaloka community since 1991. Her philosophy is that writing is a social act that belongs to anyone who has something to say, and that we generate our juiciest material by inviting our inner (and outer) critics to go on a nice, long walk without us.
