By its nature, writing is a solitary practice. To become a better writer, you need to spend many hours alone, engaged in and deepening your craft.
But you also need support, assistance and feedback. You need an expert coach, mentor and editor--someone who can help you fully commit to your writing, build your skills, and provide input that will help your writing soar.
That’s where I come in.
As an award-winning writer and author of two published novels, I know the craft of writing and the world of publishing.
As a trained educator and a Certified Professional Coach, I understand how to motivate and support writers of all levels of experience.
A teacher of creative writing for 25+ years, I can help students build on their strengths and identify and overcome weaknesses.
An editor of numerous manuscripts, I can support clients in the journey from early draft to a finished book.
Most importantly, I’m passionate about helping my students and clients commit to their writing, build their skills, and achieve their creative goals.
Join me for an 8-week writing class in Berkeley starting in October, 2019. Designed for writers working on short stories, memoirs and novels, this class will help you develop your writing craft and get focused feedback on your work. For more information, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
