SOAR Welcomes the Writers' Room Workshops, Announces New Literary Arts Category!

Writers' Room WorkshopsSOAR is delighted to welcome its newest member, Writers’ Room Workshops. Writers’ Room Workshops provide a unique opportunity for creative exploration.  Workshops are led in the Amherst Writers and Artists method and are centered on the tenets that everyone has a creative voice and a story to tell. You can find their new listing HERE!

Writers’ Room Workshops provide a fun, supportive environment in which participants generate new writing and receive useful feedback.  Participants write to a wide variety of prompts and have the opportunity to share their work.  Hearing specifically what is working in their writing allows writers to build on their strengths as they grow in their craft. Designed for novice and experienced writers alike, Writers’ Room Workshops create a space in which to explore your creative voice.

A five-session workshop series begins March 26th.  For more information and to register, visit

To accommodate the Writers’ Room’s new listing, we added a completely new category to the directory site, Literary Arts! Even with the addition of some existing members who are also writers and/or poets, the new category only has a few listings, so writers, authors and poets are all on one page for now. Please share with your creative writing friends and when there are enough listings we’ll add a new page so writers and poets will be listed separately. If you are an artist AND a writer and are currently listed with SOAR, please let us know if you would like to be added to this new category.

We have also added the Writers’ Room Workshops’ blog feed to Art Matters! ~ Look for new posts from the Writers’ Room and learn more about the valuable service they offer for writers seeking to explore their creativity in community with other writers!
