WORKSHOPS

Eanlaí Cronin Workshops

eanlaibw

Alameda-based Irish writer Eanlaí Cronin‘s workshops are based on the Amherst Writers and Artists Method, which believes that every person is a writer, and every writer deserves a safe environment in which to experiment, learn, and develop craft. Each workshop drops writers easily and instantly into the core content asking to be written through them, whether it is poetry, fiction, memoir or journal and process writing. Participants write to carefully prepared prompts designed to prime the creative pump, read their work aloud (though not required), and give and receive positive feedback using a simple and skillful AWA format. Open to writers of all ability levels.

Workshops start every few months so email Eanlai at eanlaicronin@gmail.com for more information or to register for the next session.

No previous writing experience is required. Just book your place in advance and take the Amherst Writers and Artists Method for a test drive.

“The time spent in Eanlai’s writing workshop has been a profound healing experience for me. Eanlai creates a space for creativity with the freedom to express yourself without inhibition.  The healing is not just from my own writing, but from hearing the words and wisdom of the other writers in the group.  It is mystical.” – Sharon Kuhn, Fremont, CA
