What is it?
PROJECTS is a weekly workshop facilitated by writer/performer Demi Anter, where participants develop and polish their own creative projects, in a supportive, playful environment. It is a space for artists and writers to find practical feedback, accountability, plus tips and tricks for jump-starting creativity in 2021.
Our first installment will consist of four two-hour-long sessions, taking place once a week in the month of February, plus one individual session with the facilitator during the month. The course will take place on Zoom.
Who is it for?
The workshop is for anyone who wants to pursue a creative goal and needs a little motivation to get started or to keep going.
Whether you're writing for the first time, developing a performance piece or photography collection, finishing a pamphlet of poems, looking to hear your script out loud, or simply wanting to stay creative and connected to other artists during lockdown, these four weeks are intended to give you what you need to stay motivated.

"Demi is an incredible teacher and inspiring leader. She holds the space for curiosity, allowing questions as you go, while creating an atmosphere that is welcoming and conducive to learning. I loved her writing workshop at STATTLAB and got so much out it — particularly the free writing prompts that she facilitated at the beginning of each session. These allowed me to reconnect with writing in a way that I hadn't in many years. Thank you Demi!"

"Demi’s writing workshop was exactly what I needed to spark my creativity and start writing again. She’s an extremely organized and engaging workshop leader, striking the perfect balance of structure and flow. She created an inclusive environment of creative experimentation and support. I’ve been waiting for her to host another workshop!"

"Demi is an articulate person and a skillful editor who puts as much love into other's poems as she does into her own. Taking a class with her would be extremely beneficial to anyone who wants to get their work published."
— Paige Wajda-Smith, Poet & Editor
"Demi's prowess as a poet aside, her many gifts also include the ability to foster a comfortable, welcoming, collaborative, and inspiring workspace. I often think back to my time writing with Demi in her workshop last year as one of the highlights of my time participating in Berlin's writing scene — not just for the community it introduced me to, but for the support I received from my peers, and the challenges and motivations her facilitation encouraged. Without question, my time with Demi in her workshop pushed me to become a better, more focused and productive writer, and I look forward to working with her again."
— Eliza Levinson, Artist & Journalist
"Demi facilitates writing groups and events with mindfulness and sensibility, always sure to be inclusive to all and attentive to the needs of each writer. My time working with Demi on my individual poems as well as larger writing projects has been invaluable and I’m continually grateful for her counsel and support."
— Gianluca Avanzato, Poet
