This is what I love most -- guiding others on their writing explorations. I offer writing classes and workshops throughout the year, specializing in memoir, personal essay and creative nonfiction, for people of all ages.

Invite me to your retreat center, conference, university or organization, and let me share with you what I know about the importance of doing the inner work that leads to a healthier, more vital presence in the world.
