Write for Your Life!

with Joanne Fay Brown

Have you kept a journal for years, but wish to go deeper in your writing? Want to write a memoir for the younger generations in your family? Are you feeling creatively stuck, needing inspiration? When was the last time you wrote, as the poet Rainer Maria Rilke exhorted, “about your sorrows, your wishes, your passing thoughts, your belief in anything beautiful?”

An experienced workshop leader and the camaraderie of other writers who provide feedback about what’s working in your writing can help! Joanne Fay Brown provides writing workshops using the acclaimed Amherst Writers & Artists (AWA) method and works with writers one-on-one to evaluate manuscripts. 

Joanne has been working with writers and hosting Amherst Writers & Artists workshops since 2012 – in Oakland, California; Oaxaca, Mexico; and now in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Learn more…

As a new writer, the workshop provided a safe, supportive and energizing experience that helped my writing grow in directions I never could have imagined!  I’m so inspired to keep going with it. Thank you Joanne!

“One of the few things I know about writing is this: spend it all, shoot it, play it, lose it, all, …Give it, give it all, give it now. Something more will arise for later …these things fill from behind, from beneath, like well water.”       —Annie Dillard
