I lead writing workshops for a variety of learning institutions, including library systems, literary organizations, senior enrichment centers and for privately commissioned small groups. Workshops range from 10 weekly sessions to single session events and every length in between. All of my workshops can be tailored to a wide range of participants at any juncture of their writing lives, from beginners to seasoned veterans.
