The AWA Method supports all genres and skill levels by using a non-hierarchical approach, a diverse array of writing prompts and constructive feedback unique to AWA writing practices. Each week, educational materials are provided to support various writing styles, form, tone and voice. Time will be dedicated both to writing new work and to implementing AWA editing skills that further hone our craft of writing. No writing experience required! The AWA method is NOT a spelling or grammar class. And while writing is healing, the AWA is not psychotherapy. 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.

Suzanne is a multi-modal artist with work appearing in Sirsee, mgversion2>datura, Slipstream, Dawnland Voices, Muddy River Poetry 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. Suzanne is a NY CASAC, holds graduate degrees and certifications in psychology and creative writing, and is also a USMC and USA veteran. To view a list of qualifications, philosophy of practice and her creative writing, visit
