Manuscript Consultations

One of my favorite things to do is to work one-on-one with authors. It allows me to build a relationship with the work and see it evolve over time. I'm a close reader who makes lots of margin comments, but I'll help you keep the big picture in mind, too.  More info here.

October Classes

Both of these classes are underway! If you're interested in taking one in the future, get in touch! I'll be holding them again in the late fall/early winter. 

Online Workshop

A traditional writing workshop, by email. We'll discuss one author's work each week. You can submit up to 5,000 words of your story or novel. Email discussions will take place each Wednesday, all day, so you can jump in whenever you're able. Limit: 5 participants.

Wednesdays, October 21 through November 18. Cost: $150.

Get Writing

Is there a story or novel you want to work on? Do you need a daily dose of encouragement, structure, and guidance? Try this course!

You'll get short daily assignments by email, which you'll share with the class. The exercises are designed to move you forward on your current writing project, by helping you explore character, stakes, plot and other elements of your narrative.

Each daily assignment will require only about 15 minutes of writing time.

This course is conducted entirely by email, so you can do the assignments whenever you have time, without leaving the house, yet still have a sense of community, accountability and structure.

Class runs from Monday, October 19 to Friday, November 13. Cost: $150.

Best of all, you can try it for the first week for just $20, then pay the balance if you'd like to continue.

About me: I am an award-winning author, educated at the Iowa Writers' Workshop, and I have over twenty years of teaching experience. I'm currently a resident faculty member at the Yale Summer Writers' Conference and an editor at Origins Journal. I have a story in this month's issue of Tin House Magazine. More about me here.
