New England Yearly Meeting

A community of Quakers and Quaker meetings across New England.

Writing as a Spiritual Practice


Friday, March 8, 2019 - 4:30pm to Sunday, March 10, 2019 - 2:00pm


107 Keets Rd
Deerfield , MA


This workshop will be conducted in the Amherst Writers and Artists method as described by Pat Schneider in Writing Alone and With Others (Oxford, 2003). The method fosters a safe, confidential, nonhierarchical environment in which writers at all levels of experience can grow and learn from one another.

If you are a confident writer looking for an opportunity to spend time with your writing in a worshipful space, this is for you; if you are an anxious writer looking for a place to explore without fear of red pen, this is for you; if you have a story that is fighting to come out, this is for you; if you don’t know what to do with a blank page, this is for you.

Workshop leader Emily Savin is a writer, writing workshop leader, and political organizer.
