I teach to reach out to the many out there who like me bend and break under this culture of silence we were raised in.


Write with me!

I teach Memoir and Personal Essay Writing Workshops to beginners and mid-stream writers, focusing on Finding Your Voice and Accessing it.

Classes are offered in individual and group settings. Please email me for details.


“Thank you for a wonderful workshop. Your energy and passion surrounding ‘voice’ reinvigorated me.”

“Thanks to you for your workshop last night. I wrote around six pages this morning, by hand (for my own eyes) – I felt so much lighter! I was cranking stuff out. Felt amazing.”
