description of :
I have 16 years of experience as a teacher that includes teaching massage and aromatherapy courses, high school English and a variety of writing workshops. Other workshops I have taught/am teaching include: “Prewrite, Write, Rewrite: A Guide to Improving Your Personal Communication,” “Why Aren't You Writing? A Jump-Start Workshop for the Hesitant Scribe,” "Writing is a Heroic Journey" and "Collage Your Novel: The Most Creative Writing Outline You'll Ever Do."

As a writing teacher I enjoy working with writers of all levels and understand that it can be difficult to share your work with others. But no one can write in a vacuum! We need the feedback, encouragement and ideas of our fellow writers to truly hone our craft. In my workshops, I strive to create a safe, supportive atmosphere where creativity is encouraged.

 
Teacher's qualifications:
In 2008 I recieved a MFA in creative writing from Goddard College. I am currently completing my second novel and am the author of many short stories and personal essays. Two of my plays have been produced locally
 
's preferred teaching style:
My teaching style is positive and supportive. Live chats will be combined with reading and writing assignments. Peer critique will be only by persmission from the writer.
