Writing workshops in Grand Rapids start January 8

Voice & Vessel's writing workshops in Grand Rapids support eight writers at a time... just small enough to give each writer plenty of thoughtful support, and just big enough to have a range of voices and interests in each group. 

No two workshops are ever the same, with prompts and creative guidance that will help spark your writing journey. Every workshop is rooted in the Amherst Writers & Artists Method, which has been trusted for over 30 years by creative folks around the world. Learn more.


Voices of writers...

"... bringing forth words that I did not know were ready and waiting, and inspiring me to take the energy from Monday's workshop into the rest of my week. This writing studio is a gem and I cannot wait to return."

"Emily introduced the Amherst Writers & Artists Method into my life and I realized why every other workshop had been so disappointing. It was because of Emily and the AWA Method that I learned to take back my dignity as a writer and value the way my stories speak."
