I may be a bonafide writing geek, but what I love even more is spreading the love of writing to others.

Here are some places I get to do that:

Upcoming Workshops


Memoir Writing, Beginning

Have you ever thought about writing your life stories, but don’t know where to start? Now is your time. Unleash the story within and gain practical tools to tell it well. Beat writer’s block and learn how to mine vivid stories from your real life in an inspiring and nonthreatening environment. Students who complete this class will finish with a mini-memoir.

Wednesdays, Summer 2018 at Gavilan Community College.

Ages 8+

Kid's Magazine Writing

In this workshop, children will team up to write, edit, photograph, design, and illustrate their very own magazine. Then they’ll get to show off their finished product to their friends and family. They’ll have so much fun with the process they’ll forget they are learning.

July 10-August 2

Greenhouse Coworking, 7500 Monterey Street

Email me to get on the shortlist for this class!


Memoir Writing, Advanced

You have mastered the basics of memoir writing, but now what? Don’t stop there -- dig deeper in this advanced workshop. Take your writing to the next level by studying the Great Authors of memoir. Those who complete the course will finish with a polished short memoir through expert critique and peer workshopping. Students will work toward publishing their stories.

Wednesdays, Summer 2018 at Gavilan Community College
