For over 25 years, I’ve helped writers get their words into the world. I love exploring the possibilities that come with a new story or idea. I believe we’re natural storytellers, and sometimes just need a little support, structure, and information to get us where we want to go creatively. My classroom is a place for ah-ha moments, clarity, and kindness towards yourself and others. It’s also fast paced, engaging, and an opportunity to level up from where you are to where you want to be. It’s a place to develop and hone specific writing skills but it’s also a literary community. Be open to learning from the writers around you, pay attention to your own life and words, and come with a willingness to do the work necessary to help you achieve your goals while taking care of the writers around you. I look forward to working with you.
