The Short Story (online)
January 23rd to January 24th, 2021
Writing a short story is a wonderfully intricate process; we make countless creative decisions in the course of telling a single tale. During these two days, we’ll explore the most vital creative decisions and find what works for you as a storyteller.
Writing about Food (online)
February 13th to February 14th, 2021
Writing about food can be deep, rich, rewarding. The goal of this workshop: to help you find your voice as a food writer. You’ll think, eat, and write about food.
Writing Nonfiction (online)
March 20th to March 21st, 2021
“Creative nonfiction” can take so many forms: the profile or feature article, the travel piece, the review, the personal essay or memoir, and more. Compelling nonfiction transcends the mere factual.
Most writing happens when we're alone.
That’s why the Amsterdam Writing Workshops exists. To form a community around people who write. To secure a safe place for receiving writing feedback. To cultivate writing skill, and enhance power of expression.
Each month, from September to June, we offer a workshop or two. And while many of the topics may change, one thing remains constant: the Amsterdam Writing Workshops help writers write.
