Lesley Howard and Jenny Zia are both certified to lead Amherst Writers and Artists workshops. This approach, in the tradition of Dorothea Brande, Peter Elbow, Patricia Schneider, and Brenda Ueland holds that
> we all have a strong, unique voice;
> we are all born with creative genius;
> writing is an art form that belongs to all people, regardless of economic or education level;
> teaching craft can be done without damaging a writer’s original voice or sense of artistic self; and
> a writer is someone who writes.
