The Art of Revision
May 25th to May 26th, 2019
“Writing is rewriting,” the adage tells us. But how do we rewrite? How do we decide what to leave in and what to take out? How do we determine the scope of a piece, divine its essence, know where to start and where to end?

What’s so great about very short stories? Well, you can read a work of flash fiction over a single cup of coffee. And writing a work of micro-fiction can be done in a day.
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.
