Philosophy

"My goal in every workshop is to create a community for writers where everyone involved can explore, develop and stretch their writing skills. This involves not only providing an opportunity to practice writing but to learn how to give and receive feedback in a way that is meaningful to the writer. My hope is that writers find the workshop environment a safe place to learn and explore the craft of writing and that they acquire tools and skills they can apply to the development of their work after the workshop ends.

In this way, I hope to empower writers with the skills to continue writing on their own and with an understanding of how to form future writing communities on their own.

I take no greater compliment than when members of my workshops continue to meet and work together after the workshop has ended."
