Hear opinions on strengths and places the work grabs the reader

Learn craft techniques

Receive suggestions

Learn how to critique other’s writing

Receive recommendations on novels/memoirs, stories, and craft books to read

Have accountability to get writing done

Be surrounded by writers who support you and your creativity

Private Coaching

I work with beginning and intermediate writers of essays and fiction. Using email, phone calls, and/or Skype, clients are coached through goal-setting, plot, voice, techniques, and information on publishing and the use of social media. Use the contact form and let me know a bit about yourself and your writing goals.
