We all have the intrinsic desire to be deeply interested in our work. Attention, connection, and trust: these are the foundations of my courses. My unique skill in teaching writing is to draw out the voice that has fallen silent.
With genuine voice you reach your audience's attention. The authentic voice carries beyond the din of everything else. We trust it. Dare to be more authentic on the page.
Writing matters to the artist, scientist, and entrepreneur alike. The act of writing helps find language for a new idea and builds the connection between you, the new idea, and others.
Writing expands our perspectives on work, world, and life. Let me design a course the integrates intensive in-person workshops with online conversations to meet your challenges today.
Your class was inspiring and, in fact, transporting.
I stayed as long as I did because I felt so engrossed in what you were doing. You have a calling — it is teaching. I am certain that those students will, years from now, remember and value the experience."
