Flash Fiction (online)

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.
The Art of Revision (online)
May 20th to May 21st, 2023
“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?
The Novel (online)
June 10th to June 11th, 2023
Writing a novel is often a marathon experience. The challenges are in starting; in keeping the faith; and, of course, in finishing.
Writing Nonfiction (online)
July 8th to July 9th, 2023
“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.
