Well, life gave us lemons, and it’s time to make lemonade. All in-person events are postponed due to COVID-19, but ACW still has lots to offer online for you during this tense time. These offerings are designed to be interactive and accessible and to inspire you to create, chat, and read. 

Did you know stories actually create endorphins as you read and hear them? ACW knows that stories and the many vessels they take (essays, poetry, songs, books) can make everyone feel connected and challenged. Stories are what make us human. That’s why right now is the most important time to turn to writing, reading, and storytelling.

Weekly writing prompts are delivered on Mondays, and you can read the responses on Fridays. PoemVillage has turned into an epic online display of locally-harvested poetry coming to your inbox from April 20-May 10. Online writing classes are being created specifically to invite those at home to create new work, and be inspired even from home.

Let’s look forward to the future together.

Help ACW continue to support you through the coming months. The future might feel overwhelming, but ACW is committed to infusing joy into your life with upcoming programming! With your continued support, ACW can offer new online classes every month, story nights, a discussion series, writing workshops for teens, and more for all ages.

Make this winter amazing for the ACW family. Be a part of ACW. Give now!
