The AWA Method supports all genre and skill levels of writers by using a non-hierarchical approach, a diverse array of writing prompts and constructive feedback based on the AWA’s writing practices. Each week educational materials are provided to support various writing styles, form, tone and voice.

The first two workshops will be dedicated to writing new work with the last two weeks practicing editing skills that further hone our craft of writing. No writing experience required!

The AWA method is NOT a spelling or grammar class. The premise of the AWA Method draws from the Expressive Arts profession and is guided by AWA Affiliate and internationally published writer, Suzanne S. Rancourt. Ms. Rancourt is Abenaki/Huron decent, Bear Clan, born and raised in the mountains of West Central Maine currently residing in the Adirondack Mountains, NY. She is a multi-modal artist with work appearing in Sirsee, Slipstream, Dawnland Voices, The Muddy River Review, Ginosko, Journal of Military Experience, Cimarron Review, Callaloo, numerous anthologies and translations. Her book, Billboard in the Clouds, was the winner of the Native Writers’ Circle of the Americas First Book Award. Ms. Rancourt is a USMC and USA veteran. She is a multi modal expressive arts therapist, consultant, educator with graduate degrees and certifications in psychology, creative writing, drug and alcohol recovery.
