Explore your creativity through fiction, nonfiction, and poetry.
Simply Writing (online)
October 29th to October 30th, 2022
Do you only write when you have an assignment? What obstacles do you experience to writing? How can you structure your life in order to keep writing? How, exactly, do you finish a piece of writing?
Writing Nonfiction (online)
November 26th to November 27th, 2022
“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.
The Short Story (online)
January 28th to January 29th, 2023
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.
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.
