Advanced Fiction (online)
October 23rd to October 24th, 2021
Writer’s block. Narrators trapped inside their own heads. Stories with intriguing beginnings—but no clear ending. These are a few of the problems fiction writers may face.
The Novel (online)
November 27th to November 28th, 2021
Writing a novel is often a marathon experience. The challenges are in starting; in keeping the faith; and, of course, in finishing.
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.
