Our campus is closed in 2020. But we're still here for you. Join Omega Conversations with favorite teachers, and our private  Facebook Group community.

For more than 20 years, Authentic Writing has been creating a studio where writing happens. We work entirely from life, writing down the moments we have lived, letting the writing itself lead the way so that we are always entering new territory—no maps, no plans. We go for the concrete and the real, trusting the images that come to mind and putting them into words without hesitation. In this way the unique quality of each personal story and writing voice quickly emerges.

Periods of writing alternate with opportunities to read what we’ve written. Responses to each other’s work is specifically designed to support each writer in going further and writing more.

Whether you have written for years or not at all, you will create here a collection of pieces that only you could have written and depart with an invigorated sense of who you are as a person, a writer, and an artist.
