Writing Workshops

For June-July 2020, Amy is offering her Paris Writing Workshops VIRTUALLY (by Zoom)

1/2-Day Virtual Writing Workshops

Take 1 workshop or as many as you want - choosing whichever piques your interest!

  • Each workshop is 4 hours long (with breaks to write)
  • Come with a story you’ve already written and want to improve, or with that blank page just waiting to be filled!
  • 50 euros ($57) per workshop.

Workshops will be morning for U.S. participants, so afternoon for Europe. The schedule will be set once we know all participants’ time zones!

Feedback from Parents and Participants

“My daughter had a great time at your writing workshop. I do not think she has been this happy since we moved to France.”

“…every night he’d come home and tell me everything that you worked on that day. He really enjoyed it too and showed a high level of enthusiasm for his pieces that demonstrated what he learned.”

“My daughter loved the workshop! We certainly hope to sign up for future workshops.”

“Thanks for a wonderful first day; [my daughter] came home really pleased and pumped. This workshop is going to be so good for her!”

As host of the Shakespeare & Company Teen Book Club

“My daughter went to the Teen Book Club tonight. I lingered in the library for a few minutes. I like the writer a lot. She is very calm and curious and warm with the participants. She’s very cool. I really admired the way she was with the children.”
