WORKSHOPS

Live Storytelling - Basic Tips and Tricks
I have experience prepping “non-storytellers” for their first on-stage storytelling experiences. This workshop covers the “why” and “how” or storytelling.

Writing for Reluctant Teen Readers - Why Bother?
This workshop answers the questions:
What is a “reluctant” teen reader?
What can writers do to engage them?
and
Why should writers care about these readers who often get left behind?

How to Be a Literary Citizen - Creating a Literary Community
For all the talk about writing being a solitary act, many writers will tell you that community’s where it’s at. Lots of writers have ready-made communities in their lives, whether it’s on the lit mag staff in high school or around a workshop table in grad school, but how do you, and why should you, create a community outside of academia?

CONSULTATIONS

Do you want to write a book? How about place an essay in a major market? Is everyone always telling you you have a story to tell? Let’s chat!
