Brooklyn Safe Space Stories

Spring into writing with a 5-week AWA writing session starting Friday, March 2, 2018 in historic Carrol Gardens, Brooklyn.

Safe Space Stories invites you to spend a few hours a week getting in touch with your literary spirit in March 2018 in an historic, landmarked home in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn. Using the Amherst Writers & Artist's Method (, and led by certified instructor Paul Rozario-Falcone, we will write in a group using literary prompts that hopefully inspire free writing in short bursts. Not a creative writing how-to course, Safe Space Stories is instead a place for your creativity to feel encouraged and affirmed within a safe and respectful group.

What to expect

Each week, participants will be given writing prompts to start exploring writing in short bursts. The writing prompts can be anything from lines of poetry to images to objects. In order to stimulate creativity, the prompts will only be revealed to participants at the workshop, just before we start writing in a group. Writers will then share their writing if they wish. Fellow writers are invited to comment by only giving positive feedback. No questions, no suggestions, no constructive criticism. Only what we like and what was memorable.
