Whether you're looking for a literary agent, or seeking to self-publish,
I will evaluate, develop, and polish your manuscript, book proposal, and pitch letters. I use my
time-tested technique to help you capture the attention of agents, then offer continuing support
throughout the negotiation of your book contract, book design, and production.
You can count on me to be a warm body at your book launch.
I tutor students 1:1 in all aspects of writing
and I'm available for team-building and communications
workshops in corporate settings.
Classes: Crafting Creative Nonfiction / Nature-Inspired Writing / Healing Through Writing / Brainstorming for Your Next Book / Writing From Visual Prompts / Writing and Mindfulness Techniques / Spoken Word Workshop
WORKSHOPS & CLASSES
In my workshops, I teach you to access a mode of experience called “flow.” Writing in the flow produces prose that's clear, compelling, and entertaining. Participants take a deep dive into their creative center using techniques from method acting, yoga, reiki, and meditation disciplines. During each session, the physical exercises and writing prompts are designed to enhance your sensory awareness and improve your vitality.
